Story Grammar

Story grammar is the typical flow or schematic of a story. Most oral language and written stories follow a similar pattern. This pattern may also be called story grammar or story structure. They all mean the same thing!

Understanding this pattern is very important for oral language abilities (ability to tell a coherent story), for the ability to understand oral and written stories, and for the ability to write a good story.

Setting:

  1. Who: Who is in the story?
  2. When: When does the story take place?
  3. Where: Where does the story take place?

Plot

  1. What’s the problem?
  2. How are they going to fix it? What’s the plan?
  3. Attempt 1
  4. Attempt 2
  5. Attempt 3 and so on

Ending

  1. What happened at the end?
  2. How do the characters feel?
