Story Snapshot

A FREEBIE for today...
My second graders keep a reading journal.  I have them do a variety of activities that correspond to our story for the week.  My favorite activity is the Story Snapshot.  I usually complete it whole group a couple of times and then it becomes a weekly station activity.  My students simply glue it into their reading journal (spiral) when it is complete.  I love it because it's a quick snapshot of the story, and my students can complete it independently and fairly quickly.  You can click on the Story snapshot image below to get it FREE at my TPT store.  The adorable border for this activity is from Hello Literacy. 



  1. Colleen,
    I love a rich lather of comprehension strategies posted throughout the classroom. Your ice cream scoops sure hit the spot! Thank you for sharing your snapshot freebie with me!
