My students use this slider to help them have a visual tool to assist with the comprehension strategy of retelling a story.
Retelling is an excellent way to ensure our kiddos have properly comprehended what they have read. If they cannot recount the story to you, they probably did not understand what they read. By having your students tell you the setting, main characters, and plot of the story, you can help ensure that they have adequately comprehended their book.
We use this visual tool for retelling to train us to remember all the important things to include when retelling.
