Story Elements Freebie

We are working on story elements this week and I wanted to share a little freebie I created to help your students map the elements.

It's nothing spectacular, but it works! Just click the image to download.

I will have my students fill this out after reading one of their books. 

I also saw this super cute idea from Cara over at the First Grade Parade

She read the book, "Stellaluna," and had the students create these Beginning Middle and End bats! Aren't they adorable? 

I plan on doing these this week as well since it's the perfect time of year!

Anyone else excited about the season premier of Walking Dead tonight!? EEEK!! This girl can't wait!


  1. You say nothing big but I really like your sheet. It is the first one I have seen that uses Story Elements as a title with the other categories. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Your sheet is one more way of keeping those important concepts in front of our kids...good for you. If you are in to bats, here is one resource that I use in my class for quick reference...All About Bats at
    I especially like the Echo! Location! activity. It gets the kids moving and really gets the idea across.

  3. An easy to use graphic organizer-thanks for sharing. Smiles and stop by anytime.

  4. The link isn’t working for me anymore and I’d love to use it! Help!!

    Thank you for making such a great product!

  5. yes it's not working How can I download?

  6. I fixed it! It should be working now.
