A great activity to help your students practice how to site their evidence in the text. It also helps students learn the parts of stories, dramas, and poems. (e.g., chapters, scenes, and stanzas).

  • Turn to:
  • Stone Soup

  • Answer is: ___________

Students need to go deeper!

REMEMBER: Text is more than just words. It includes any resource from written, illustrations, audio, and video.

*Students need to understand that every narrative has a problem and solution.

*Plot is more than just beginning, middle, and end.

*Students need to understand how the parts of the story build upon each other.

*Improve the graphic organizers you use to help students dive deeper in the text so they can gain greater understanding .

Sarah walked briskly with her friend Adam into school. Adam didn’t know that she was in a hurry to get to the library before class. She listened to his story about his dog but she really just wanted to walk faster. What if the book was already checked out? What would she do for her project?
