School speech-language pathologist Michelle Carlson shares how to make and use a "story champion chart" to teach narrative structure and storytelling to preschool and older children.
"What is a narrative? Narratives are basically stories. A child needs to know how to tell stories in order to be successful in school and make friends. Can you picture it? Children are always telling stories in the school setting. If a child is taking too long or their narrative doesn't make any sense, the other child is probably going to walk away bored. I ... adapted my own Story Champion Chart to use not only with preschoolers but also with K–third grade ... The kids love it, and they really do learn the main components of storytelling. It also translates into better writing, so the teachers love it too. There is a large symbol sheet for teaching, and a small symbol chart to use for printing and making the nifty little booklet. The symbols are 'character,' 'problem,' 'feeling,' 'action' and 'ending.'"
