Engage with a Page: An Exploration of the Language of Books

( View ASL )

Do you dread writing a book report or being called upon to talk about a story? Did you know that there are five elements that make up a story?

Getting to know the language of books can help us understand, explain, and think more deeply about stories. This program welcomes students to explore the five elements of a story through reading well known and new children’s books.

In this program, students will have opportunities to:

  • Practice discussing the elements of stories with their peers
  • Recall and retell story events
  • Use “Wh” questions to compile story observations
  • Make predictions
