This set of retell work can be used to teach retells of narratives and non-fiction texts. Use for:
• Posters and a display
• Explicit teaching and modeling
• Guided reading, literacy centers or small group work
• Independent reading and writing
To help remember the retell structure visual pictures are used.
The Narrative has pictures relating to characters, setting, problem and solution.
The Non-Fiction has pictures relating to the introduction, description and conclusion.
EG: I have used beach images and explain as an example the topic is the beach, the description has facts about the beach and the conclusion has a personal comment about the beach.
You can print these in A4 or print 2 to a page to save paper and ink. Laminate and reuse these to save time.
Explicitly teach the components of a good retell using the posters and display signs (I put my pictures on a rope and call it a retell rope) and worksheet/graphic organiser template.
Then use the worksheet/graphic organiser as an independent literacy center, guided reading task or for homework.
There is an extra homework page. I use this to save on printing costs. Print the homework page and the 2 display posters, laminate and send in a homework book with home readers. Students reuse the homework page and you don’t have to photocopy the worksheet.
This product is for classroom or home use.
