  4. 4. Parts of A Story Has anyone ever made a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich? How do you make it? Lets watch this video to think about it Just like how you make and eat this Sandwich, stories have different parts and go in a certain order to help make everything perfect! Those are Parts of a Story! Today we will be reading the story Where the Wild Things Are to help us identify the parts of a story!
  5. 5. Story Web To Help us keep track of the different parts of a story we use something called a Story Web A story web is a map that helps us break up the different parts of a story by filling in blanks. We will be using one today to help us with the parts of Where The Wild Things Are It Looks Like this.. setting characters Title My big dog
  6. 6. First thing you need.. Author Illustrator • The Author writes the story • The Illustrator draws the • His or her name is usually pictures found on the first page or • Their name is also found on on the cover the first page or on the • Usually says Written By, or cover just their name so you • Usually Says Illustrated by.. know who wrote it
  7. 7. Main Characters! • What are main characters? – People or creatures that are important to the story They are talked about and described the most. Ex. In Cinderella who is the most important? Or how about in The Cat and The Hat? Its Its easy when you think about it! 
  8. 8. Setting • The Setting is where the story takes place Or in other words where is it happening For instance is the story on a beach? At your house? In a far away kingdom or planet? You Decide! What are some other ideas?
  9. 9. Conflict • Conflict what makes the story • It can be a problem or a situation that the character(s) have to work through. • It can be as simple as an argument with friends, losing your puppy The conflict doesn’t have to be a bad thing, it can be about learning, solving a problem, or anything else that makes the story move forward Can you think of any ideas? Ex. The Cat came to town, Dorothy needed to see the wizard.
  10. 10. Plot • The Plot is how the Author arranges the story. It is the sequence of events and happenings that make the story what it is. • Just like when we watched the sandwich video things had to go in a certain order • Example. In Goldilocks and the Three Bears, if the bears would have found her in their bed right away, the story would end right on the first page!
  11. 11. What Do You Think? • ( write your answers ( or draw) into your story web ) • Who were the main Characters? • Where did the story take place? ( the setting) • Did Max have any conflicts? • What do you think the plot of the story was? What else did you like about the story? GREAT JOB! 
