Summary and retell activities can get rather ho-hum after a while. This "Rockin' Retell" packet offers oodles of ideas to help freshen up your retell lessons. My goal was to create easy to use activities that engage kiddos and generate a bit of excitement surrounding that same old summary and retell standard. All of the activities can be slipped in throughout the year, can be used with just about any story, and are common core aligned! Most activities come with multiple templates to help better meet the needs of your students and/or grade level! This puppy is jam-packed . . . please take a moment to check out the preview :)
