Are you looking for a fun new way to teach story elements?
Students will love this mnemonic for remembering the different features of fiction text! S.T.O.R.Y. is part of a visualizing strategy called "Picture It!," developed by Victoria Naughton (2008). Each letter of S.T.O.R.Y. represents a different story element. Not only do I love this mnemonic for students learning the ingredients of a good story, but it's great for story retelling and story summarizing. To help my students remember the mnemonic, I created a strategy poem!
