Description

Engage young students with our Story Elements Lesson Plan, which identifies the three basic parts of a story and prepares students to use the different parts to write a short story.  Students also generalize understanding by creating titles for stories and writing their own story within a small group setting.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:

  1. Read the short story to the students.

  2. Allow for responses and discussion.
  3. Ask students if they think every story has a beginning, middle, and end.
  4. Allow for responses and discussion.
  5. Distribute the Stories content pages. Read and review the information. If necessary, read an additional story aloud, pointing out the beginning, middle, and end of the story.
  6. Ask students to create a title for the frog story. Discuss choosing a story title.
  7. Distribute the Activity page. Read and review the instructions. Pair the students. Tell students to use the information given, but they may also add other details if necessary.
  8. Allow students sufficient time to write the completed story.
  9. When all have finished, allow each pair of students to read their stories aloud.
