Product Description
My students in my classroom love doing read alouds. We use these visuals to help them retell the story with me - I pass out a handful of cards to each student before I begin the story. We review what each card is before we begin reading, and then as I read, students help put the cards in order (either on the small group table or in a pocket chart). The students stay engaged through the whole story and it helps them with their retelling later.

My kiddos love Bear books - the books follow a predictable pattern and have the same characters appear again and again. My students love the predictability of the books and feel successful when we retell the stories. Included are visuals to support all main plot events and characters in the book to use while reading or following a read aloud.

The sequencing book can be used as an independent literacy center (if your students are independent enough), or a small group lesson. Students can independently match icons to the fill-in-the-blank pages from memory or using the book to sequence their independent books. For students needing more support, they can use the tracing format to be successful at matching correctly to the page and to support them writing the words to complete the story.

When I did this with my kids, I prep the books ahead of time and pre-cut the icons [if your students have better fine motor control, they can cut the pictures out independently]. We sorted them and only passed out about 5 pictures at a time to cut down on confusion. While building our sequencing book, we keep the book out to reference to as we go.

Happy Reading!
