What Is the Setting in a Story?

We’re glad you asked! The setting of a story has two distinct parts: where the story is taking place, and when the story is taking place. The setting is one of the first narrative features taught to early readers and writers.

This set of worksheets has been designed to support you in teaching story settings to your little learners. Each page contains a simple text that students with some early decoding skills should be able to navigate on their own. Students are required to:

  • Read the story.
  • Colour any words that describe the setting.
  • Write down the setting (in words) and explain how they know this is the setting.
  • Draw a picture of the setting.

The texts included in this story settings worksheet pack are:

  1. The Pig
  2. Play
  3. The Frog
  4. The Bed
  5. The Rat
  6. Lunch

Multiple Uses for These Story Settings Worksheets

This versatile resource can be used in various ways in your early years classroom. Why not try some of the following activities:

  • Whole-class activity (via smartboard)
  • Reading group task
  • Individual practice
  • Homework task
  • Summative assessment

Differentiate this task for learners of varied abilities by encouraging more-confident readers to complete the activity independently. Less-confident readers may benefit from completing the activity in a small-group setting with adult support.
