Story map anchor chart

February 23, 2012

Help students break down the components of a story with this story map created by Kimberly at Funky in First. You can present the story map before, during and after reading a story so students have the opportunity to add to it as they find new information and make new discoveries. Kimberly also gives each student a worksheet to fill in the characters, setting, problems, and solutions independently before sharing as a group. This visual support will be helpful for students who will struggle to find answers without the support of peers. Keeping such a map up in the classroom can also serve as a constant reminder of key elements of every story. Therefore, readers can be looking for each of these pieces not only after they read but as they read.
