RL.3.5 Story Structure in Text, Poems, and Plays



This RL.3.5 Story Structure in Text, Poems, and Plays unit is packed full of standards-based lesson plans, professionally Lexiled passages, and activities to use while you are teaching the standard RL.3.5. If you are not teaching Common Core, then the unit is still valuable to use when teachings students how to refer back to the text for evidence when answering questions, as well as how poems, plays, dramas, and stories sequence and events build on each other.

*There is now a digital component included in this resource. The passages and graphic organizers are now created in Google Slides. You can get access to the digital versions on page 5 of the PDF. (The lesson plans, small group activities, and assessments are not digitally converted at this time.)*
