Retelling Stories

Hi everyone!  It's Jennie from JD's Rockin' Readers.

Retelling stories is a BIGGIE in the world of Common Core so I feel like I need to start teaching it soon- very soon. 

Don't you just love when your little friends try to retell a story and they just don't quite get it?  You know what I mean- they start in the middle of the story or their retelling is all of one sentence?  Over the years, I have had many students who struggle with how to retell a story.  I have found that just having a visual for them to look at has been a big help.  I have a FREEBIE bookmark for you today that is a great visual for when you are teaching how to retell.

I just print these on tagboard, laminate, and cut.

I am going to be starting to teach my Firsties how to retell this week.  I plan on introducing it slowly- one part at a time so hopefully it will become engrained into their heads:)

If you are working with older students, here is a great information page that they would be able to use to help them out.

If you are interested in other retelling activities, I do have a Retelling Unit you may be interested in checking out:)

Have a fabulous month and I will see you on October 15th!
