3 Books and Lessons for Teaching Setting

Hi There!

Looking for ideas on how to teach students how to identify and analyze settings in books?  Check out the three mini lesson statements and watch the video to get more ideas on how to teach setting with three specific books. 

Here is a chart with three mini lesson statements and examples of how to frame your whole class discussion.  Fill out your charts with these organizers as you discuss each book with the class!

Trombone Shorty is an award-winning true story about a talented young trombone player in New Orleans.  The setting is described beautifully, invoking all five senses as the reader discovers what life  and music is like in New Orleans.

Four Feet, Two Sandals is a remarkable story of friendship and determination based in a refugee camp.  The two young girls become friends as they share one pair of sandals between them.  The setting is powerful and ends with only one girl leaving the camp with her family, leaving them wondering who will keep the one pair of sandals.

A classic Robert Munsch book, Pigs has hilarious settings.  The little girl thinks pigs aren't smart enough to escape their pen that she fails to lock.  Little does she know she has completely underestimated the pigs and they invade every space in her life, including school!  It's a funny read and leads to lots of different settings.
