This packet was made to teach the first grade standard RI.1.2. Students read informational text/nonfiction passages. They then have to retell the story by determining the main idea and details. All stories included a main idea and 3 to 4 supporting details. Some of the stories have the main idea in the first sentence. Some of the stories have the main idea in the last sentence.
RI.1.2 Identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.
What is in this packet:

(The teacher could put the retell template in a clear plastic sleeve so that students can erase it and reuse it. The teacher could use the passages during whole group to have students practice retelling stories.)
-10 Informational Text/Nonfiction stories with retell template
(These could be used for whole group, small group, independent practice, or as an assessment of the skill.)
