Story Map Inspiration

Monday, July 18, 2011
I saw this fabulous Story Map on Growing Kinders a few weeks ago and was so inspired by it that I knew I had to make one for my class next year.  Isn't it brilliant???

This is what I came up with:

I will get this laminated when school starts back so I can use a dry erase marker to write on it (instead of using the sticky notes - although I like the sticky notes too!).   

*I had a freebie download for this but had to remove it due to the graphics/clip art I was using deciding to change its terms of use and no longer allowing teachers to post free items with their graphics.  I hate that :(

Happy Monday!


  1. I love this idea of the story map poster. I hope you don't mind but I made one to fit my classroom. I am going to post it on my blog but wanted to let you know since I will be giving you credit for it. Thank you for all the great ideas. I love your blog.

  5. I have just re-done my classroom with a monkey theme, and this is PERFECT. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing. I have had it on my to do list to make a version of that same story map that you found for months and months. Maybe I will actually accomplish it now!

  7. Thanks for sharing all of your hard work with us! I just love the story map, and i can't wait to use it with my firsties this year!

  8. I love this story map! I have it printed and ready for the laminator. Is there any way you can tell me where the font and border came from? I would love to have one that says Plot. Thanks so much!!
