This is a guide to use to help walk students through the difficult task of RETELLING a story. It gives visual clues, prompts for what they need to tell for Beginning, Middle and End of stories. There are games included, ideas for using prompting cards that have BME on each. Ways to involve students partnering together for writing stories based on segmenting their stories into parts. I've used this for years with my kids and it makes teaching retelling so much easier and it is great to use to transition into summarizing as well. Students of all ages can use these visual aides. I have made posters out of these, as well as bookmarks. I think you'll find them very useful.
