Use these story element cards to teach characters and setting to beginning writers; the importance of each; and their role in stories. Use the cards to play whole group games, such as sorts and guess again, or print them out and have students glue them into drawing journals, as seen in my blog post HERE. These Character & Setting Cards for Beginning Writers are the perfect addition to your literacy station!
