My class loves sharing about their books using five finger retells, and they especially love using these gloves to do it! Use this file to make your own story hand gloves. All you need to do is print the pictures, laminate, and glue or Velcro them to an inexpensive knit glove.
This has become a great resource for my class, and I've noticed a huge difference in the quality of their retells since using this great visual and kinesthetic reminder! My class even likes to use these to help them in Writer's Workshop!
There is a picture for setting, characters, problem, events, and solution as well as an option for setting, characters, beginning, middle, and end. This also includes a recording sheet for students to fill out on a book they have read!
