Setting Reading Response Exercise #76: A Change of Scene


Read for at least twenty to thirty minutes.


Where and when does this story take place? How do you know? What kinds of clues does the author give you in the text?

How would a different setting (time or place) impact the story? Change one thing about the setting in your mind and tell how that would change the story.

Write/Discuss: your responses with your reading partners.

Preschool Literacy:

Read: a picture book with your preschooler.

Ask: When done, ask what the story would have been like if it had taken place at a different time of day or different place.

Discuss: Have fun imagining the ways the story would be altered.
