Kid-friendly sports analogies coupled with corresponding actions & chants guarantee your students will understand the difference and become proficient at summarizing and retelling. Watch their retelling scores on the DIBELS NEXT test soar! This packet includes:
**8 posters: 4 using baseball analogies for summarizing and retelling and 4 using soccer analogies
**Detailed descriptions of movement ideas for getting your kids up and actively engaged in 'acting out' as they summarize or retell. The motions connect directly to the baseball and soccer analogies!
(I also included photographs of these to help you get the idea.)
*Engaging Chants to review learning: one for baseball, one for soccer
**Surefire tips for increasing student success
**A detailed explanation with examples of why it's important for students to know the difference between summarizing and retelling.
You'll love these posters, actions, chants & ideas! Best for grades 1-5
