St. Patrick's Day Identifying and Retelling Story Elements

This St.Patrick's Day themed free resource is designed to help our young readers to identify the elements of a story.
Through fun, hands-on practice they get to identify the main characters, the places, the main idea and plot of a story. they have the chance to talk about their favorite parts of the story, remember the new words they learned and choose which character they'd like to be.
They can give their opinion and even interfere in the story by drawing their own cover.
I really do hope your kids have as much fun as mine did!


You can either download the PDF from my FREEBIES section or visit my TpT store and download the RESOURCE from there, where you can find all of my freebies and resources :)
