This week we are working hard on the components of a good story and being able to retell with all those components evident. I've posted about retelling ropes before, but I wanted to share how much my kids love them and "get it!"
We reviewed all the story parts and created our class-size retelling anchor chart and rope. Then the kids made their own.
Retelling is an important component of discriminating comprehension in our young readers. Teaching the main components of a story will help kids understand story structure, the relationships between the parts, sequencing, author’s purpose, and so many other comprehension skills.
Here's a little retelling unit. It includes :
*A little poem to post
*A mini poster showing the Story Retelling Rope
*4 mini posters which depict some of the story parts.
*3 pages of large icons for your own large poster or retelling
*2 pages of small icons for the kids to make their own rope (color and black and white for them to color their own)
*Student recording pages(color and black and white)

Parents, don't forget to ask your kiddo about their retelling rope. Try it at home with the books your kiddo is bringing home.
Have a great night everyone!
Thanks for taking time to take a peek!!
