Story Grammar Marker Kit

Grade 3- Grade 5


Story Grammar Marker® is for narrative development: re-telling, telling, writing and comprehending stories. The SGM® incorporates MindWing’s patented icons to give children a visual, kinaesthetic tool for help with “WH” Story Grammar questions and common graphic organizers. The SGM® delves into the “why” question: motivations, feelings, plans – all necessary for the development of critical thinking skills. This colourful, hands-on tool enables children to externalize the macrostructure of the story so they can concentrate on literate language features (microstructure). It can be used with students from second to fifth grade, in regular education settings as well as those working with children with language learning disabilities, English Language Learners, children with ASD and those who have been victims of trauma, neglect and/or abuse.

These cards, by nature, are fun for all ages! However, they may be a particularly appealing manipulative for adolescents (as opposed to Braidy® or Story Grammar Marker® manipulatives).
