Elements of a Story

Today we reviewed the 5 elements of a story: Plot, characters, conflict, theme,  and setting. Students dissected a short story and identified each element. Then, we used a giant inflatable dice that each each element, plus main idea, was written on to practice.  It is vital for students to know the 5 elements when writing and be able to identify them in the books they are reading.  Ask you child to identify each element in the book they are reading from each night!

Here is a great video we sang to learn the 5 elements. WARNING!!!! It is quite catchy and will get stuck in your head all day! :)
