Retell Ropes are a great classroom tool for comprehension. I use ones that I made out of ribbons and supplies from Michaels at my guided reading table. I love the actual hands-on ropes because they make use of multiple senses and are so tactile. My students were unable to retell a story before they had these and now they are experts. After a while, I take the rope away and often find my kiddos using an imaginary rope in the air – sooo AWESOME!
