Retelling activities are a wonderful way to give your students the opportunity to tell a familiar story in their own words!
Retelling a story not only helps with sequencing of events, it expands their language and helps them become better story tellers (which is very beneficial to young writers).
Your students will love using this activity to retell the story Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault!
They can retell the story using the SmartBoard activity. I use the activity during Literacy Stations, both on the SmartBoard and on classroom computers.
