During Independent Reading, my students read for a total of 20 minutes. They were struggling to retell during Running Records.
So, I created this resource to keep them exposed to the retell stems while also tying in the annotation marks as well. This will keep students discussing the books they are reading. They read for 15 minutes, then discuss for 5 minutes. You can choose the discussion stem, or let them go through as many as they can in 5 minutes.
I printed, laminated cut, and punched a hole in the corners of each card. There are 12 cards for each key ring. I used a 1/4" binder ring.

I can swap out the K-5 retell stems and add the 6-8 stems if needed.
