Characters and setting

Focus Skill

Characters and Setting

  • Turn to page 16 in your book.

  • I know I usually find out about the characters and setting in the beginning of a story. If the story takes place at a school, I know I might read about children in a classroom or on a playground. As I read a story, I think about what a character says and does. I think how I would feel if I were a the character.

  • Let’s read pages 16-17 together.

Listening comprehension read aloud
Listening ComprehensionRead Aloud


  • Good readers try to read every word correctly, or accurately. When they realize that they have read a word incorrectly, they go back and reread it so that the sentence makes sense.

Connect with what you know.

Think about your first day at a new school. Turn and talk to a partner about your first day at a new school.

“First Day Jitters” is the title of the story I am going to read to you.

Jitters – to be nervous

Did you have jitters on your first day?

Genre: Realistic Fiction

  • Does a story about a first day at school sound like real life?

  • Stories about things that could happen in real life are called realistic fiction.

  • I know that realistic fiction is like real life. I expect that the characters in this story will be like people I know. I expect that the school will be like my school in many ways.

Focus Skill:

Characters and Setting

  • Two important parts of every story are the characters – people in the story – and the setting – when and where the story takes place.

  • Listen to identify the characters as I read “First Day Jitters”. Just as in real life, the characters do not stay in one place; so one story can take place in several settings.
