Story Retelling is so important! Here I have created a prop to use during Guided Reading. It is a "Retelling Slide" - a hands on approach to "practice" retelling. The slide will be used as part of the GRR (Gradual Release of Responsibility theory - Fisher & Frey) First, the teacher will use it (I do), then guide students (we do), as a TPS (think pair share) activity (you do it together), to finally (you do it alone). Not only do students get to hear the questions asked to them, they get to try asking the questions to someone else. The slide is a high engagement tool, because it is hands-on and visually appealing.
