I just added my packet for identifying story settings to TPT. In my packet you will find, three different versions of a setting write-up. The three versions are differentiated for either various points in the first grade year or for use in kindergarten and 2nd grade. In addition to the setting write-up pages, the packet also includes story ideas and a reading checklist and writing rubric to use for scoring. This packet fits in with the ELA Common Core Standards and focuses on not only identifying the setting, but also providing text evidence that supports the setting choice.
Check it out on TPT here…
Here are two student examples from the past school year. We used this form throughout the year in first grade and as the kiddos got better at writing the setting and text evidence we took away some of the sentence frames. These two examples are from the first quarter of first grade, so you’ll see the sentence frame in there for the kiddos to use. At the end of first grade, we required students to identify and provide evidence for two settings (also an option in the TPT packet).
Thanks for checking out my first TPT packet! Have a great night!
