Story Mountains

One reading goal this week was to practice finding the beginning, middle, and end of a story using story sequence. Students each read a copy of, "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and then worked together in teams to find the events of the story as they progressed. We then discussed their events to reinforce story structure and story sequence.

I love the post-it notes for their versatility and the symbolism of the mountain for the progression of a fictional text.
