PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Retelling Rope is a super cute, fun, and effective way to teach and practice retelling story elements {setting, character, events, conclusion} with fiction texts. This idea was passed along to me and I knew others would love it too! I included graphics for you to make your very own Retelling Rope! :)

Please stop by my blog, Castles and Crayons, for freebies and ideas! :)

On  June 10, 2012Kelli Bollman answered:
Oh no, Rnmargolis! If you are on a Mac, be sure to open the PDF in Adobe and not Preview...Preview will smudge the lines and pictures! If this doesn't fix it, or if you are on a PC, try downloading the newest update on Adobe Reader. If this still doesn't fix it, let me know and I will email you the PDF. So sorry!!!

I LOVE the idea of this product! Unfortunately when I downloaded it, a lot of the images were corrupted… Any way of double checking the file so I can download it?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 5, 2013Kelli Bollman answered:
Hi Melissa,
I am so sorry about this! If it is blurry after you open it on a MAC or PC, install the latest version of ADOBE READER. Then, open the file with ADOBE READER.
On a MAC, make sure to OPEN with ADOBE READER and NOT Preview.
If it's still blurry, please let me know and I will gladly email you the file! :)

Thanks!

Im confused. First off, in the picture i see an actual boot on your rope, but i have a little native american girl instead of a boot! anyone else have this problem?
also, do you make one of these for each student? How exactly do you use this fabulous rope?!
thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 6, 2012Kelli Bollman answered:
Hi Rachel,
The cowgirl graphic has boots on and stands for what kicks off the story. I do not have a boot graphic, so I used the cowgirl. I included the graphics if people preferred to make a Retelling Rope with the paper graphics instead of the wooden pieces, which I got at Hobby Lobby.
I made one Retelling Rope for whole group instruction and my kiddos use it during Reas to Someone as well.
Hope this helps!
Thanks!
