Narrative Retelling Guide - This worksheet is designed to help students practice retelling narrative stories using the beginning-middle-end format. It is important for students to understand the difference between a summary, which is just the main idea, and a retelling, which is important details from the beginning, middle, and end of a story. A retelling can be done with a picture book, a single chapter of a chapter book, or an entire chapter book. This worksheet is generic so it can be used with any text and is useful throughout the year. It is quick and easy to assess student understanding and can be graded and sent home to keep parents aware of the reading strategies you are teaching and practicing in class.
