Story Grammar Marker® Boom™ Cards: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer (Series 1-4), a bundle of 24 beautifully illustrated and highly engaging stories with 7 differentiated versions of each story (i.e., 168 stories in all) that are officially approved and endorsed by MindWing Concepts, Inc., creator of the Story Grammar Marker®.
These stories are connected to each other and have similar characters throughout.
Each deck has many access points for differentiation, as the stories within are crafted with each narrative development stage in mind (i.e., from stages 1 to 7).
The following skills can be targeted:
understanding/expressing story grammar elements
use of cohesive ties (i.e., temporal, causal)
SGM® BOOM™ Cards are meant to be used as a companion tool with the Story Grammar Marker® approach. They contain the Story Grammar Marker® icons (character, setting, kickoff, feeling, plan, attempts, tie-up, resolution) and can be used for teaching story grammar elements in an explicit way.
They are appropriate for the whole classroom, centers, group/individual lessons, and home programming.
Each story has an activity and option for audio.
You will also find additional resources such as demonstration videos at each stage of development, narrative stage charts, narrative stage decision tree, universal feelings/synonyms, etc.
