This product is sure to be a hit with your readers as they need to be able to retell a story! Both the posters and the bookmarks have visual clues to help young readers remember the parts to the story. The visuals tell their own story. Two characters with the playground as the setting and one of the characters is playing and the other character is bothering him or bullying him but then they become friends. Not a Caldecott but you get the picture!
The posters and the bookmarks feature hands in black and white, light-skinned and a darker- skinned tone hand to hopeful match the kids in your class or at least to come close. You will have the option.
I would laminate these and have a copy in your kids’ book bag, the bag where they keep the books you teach them and also one in their reading folder. This way they will have a handy reference each time you meet in small group.
The posters would be great at your reading table and if you are lucky enough to have a poster maker, these would be ideal blown up bigger!
Any reader who needs help with retelling will benefit!! Visuals are the key!
Whichever way you choose to display and use will help all your readers learn the important skill of retelling!
**Please note the dark–skinned hand only comes with fingers counting the way shown in the preview.
Thanks for stopping by!
