Description

Develop reading comprehension with our Settings Lesson Plan as students learn to define setting and identify the setting of a story, including the time, place, mood, etc.  Improve written expression and encourage creative writing as students craft their own story and strengthen presentation confidence by allowing students to share their stories with the class.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Read aloud the prepared opening to a story describing a setting. Ask students if they can tell where the story is taking, or will be taking place and how they know. Tell them to identify the clues that helped them guess the setting.
  2. Allow for responses and discussion.
  3. Introduce the term setting to the students and how it is related to, and its importance for, a story.
  4. Distribute Settings content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Read a current story to the students allowing them to identify the setting, including the time, place, mood, etc. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding. Use final question as a closing to the lesson.
  5. Distribute Activity page. Read and review the instructions. You may choose to do the activity as a class, checking and reviewing the students’ responses following each image/setting.
  6. Distribute Practice page. You may choose the read aloud the stories one at a time, then allow students to answer the questions independently or as a class discussion. Check and review the students’ responses.
  7. Distribute the Homework page. Review the instructions. Remind students to think about the information from the content pages before they begin writing the story. The next day, allow students to read their stories aloud to the class.
  8. In closing, ask students: What is your favorite setting for a story? Ask students why they would like it as a setting, if there is a setting they would like to make up for story, what would it be, etc.
  9. Allow for responses and discussion.
