This interactive read aloud activity focuses on retelling. To prepare, put the provided stop signs after the beginning, middle and end of your read aloud book. Before reading, give students a BME bracelet to wear during the read aloud and explain how all stories have a beginning, middle, and end. While reading, when you reach the first stop sign, allow the students to jot down what happened at the beginning of the story on their BME organizer, and continue this process for the middle and end. Lastly, use the "retelling hand" tool to help the class remember the important pieces to a good retell: Who are the characters? What is the setting? What happened at the beginning, middle and end?
