Reading Workshop partners are able to visually support one another in the retelling process by using this sheet as a guideline. Readers need to be taking turns, one is the retelling, while the other partners is the 'recorder'.
One reader, retells, their story while the partner keeps track of the story elements that have been spoken to. A "detail star" can be colored each time a unique fact, detail, story element, or another retelling component is spoken to during the activity.
The goal will be to have a quality retelling with plenty of detail stars colored.
