    Story map done for "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats. I like the pictures to show understanding of the story elements instead of writing-a lot of times much quicker for very young students.

"we made a story map. As I mapped out the story on our large story map, they got their clip boards and made their own story map along with me."

Emily Stewart, this is a super easy/cute way to work on story elements using (my favorite!) Post-It notes! You can take the Post-Its down and re-use the chart for a new story! Sure beats using boring chart paper!

If you have never read Too Many Pumpkins, it's a must read. So cute! One of my favorites. It's great to teach making predictions because most of the pages end with "until...". We filled in our story map after reading the story.

Great book! However, I recommend giving students creative autonomy over their compositions (wallpaper samples are great!) rather than having them copy the book.

Printable page to help students with mapping stories.

i think i want to make this for mini lessons with different stories and for reading groups. i always lose the sticky notes. lol

Story Map - change to Song Map with Title, Author, Arranger, Key Signature, Time Signature - all to go with my sheet music language stuff... hmmm... Genius strikes again. ;o)

Blooming In Kindergarden: Fairy Tale Story Mapping. Could be adapted for middle school: add themes, protagonist/antagonist, stereotypes...

Story maps help student pull the story apart and figure out what what it's all about. Some may think that this is unimportant to teach students in higher elementary grades but students still need to "learn to read" not only "read to learn" from kindergarten to middle school and beyond. This learning doesn't just stop once readers have a firm grasp on how to read.

Have kids make their own trifold bat with beginning/middle/end story map for the book "Stellaluna" by Janell Cannon.
