Recently I attended a Standards meeting at Lexington Middle School with some teachers at my school. Dee Arnold and I attended the language arts session. We learned several neat ways to make reading fun for kids. One way was using these story maps. The class was divided into four groups. Each group was given a category: characters, setting, problem, and solution. We came up with the drawings and then at the end combined our drawings into one big story map. The book we used was Charlie the Caterpillar, a great book!!
