Product Description
Did you know there are many benefits of children retelling stories? A recent study with students showed that children who were told a story rather than read a story had greater comprehension of the story. When asked to retell the story, the children who were told the story were more capable of retelling the story. They told longer and more detailed stories, employed more diverse vocabulary, and used more story conventions. Retelling stories also encouraged the students to retell the stories on their own and at home, an important confidence and language building activity. Furthermore, children will often seek out the stories they heard in text form. Their familiarity with the stories then aids them in reading the stories for themselves.
