This document contains retelling bookmarks with headings and pictures that will help any beginning reader remember to retell the important parts of a story. These bookmarks have the headings and pictures for characters, setting, events, problem, solution, and main idea/author's message. The bookmarks come in four different colors. The colors are light pink, light blue, light green, and light purple.
This file also contains matching posters to display in your classroom. The posters match the bookmark exactly and include pictures for the characters, setting, events, problem, solution, and main idea/author's message.
This file also contains an editable parent letter which you can change to fit your needs. The sample letter explains the importance of retelling after you read a story as well as how to use the retelling bookmark to help your child read. The letter file is in PowerPoint which will make editing easy. Just click in the text box and make your changes!
I love that my students can keep a bookmark at school in their book bins and then can take home home to practice retelling with their parents!
I hope that you enjoy this Angry Teacher Creation!
