What educators are saying

Retelling is such a difficult skill, but moving this slider is enough of a kinesthetic motion to help them cement their learning.
Loved using this resource with students for tutoring over the summer. The format was great for students to practice reading fluency and displaying retell knowledge. Thanks for a great resource!

Are you ready for a hands-on, highly visual retelling tool for your beginning readers?! This retelling packet comes with a FUN and unique Retelling Slider template to help little readers remember to retell the characters, setting, and events of the text as they orally retell. I used to use a Retelling Rope with my students, but my struggling students could never remember what each “knot” represented, and looking back and forth at a poster, or trying to remember the colors of a retelling bracelet is just too tough for some students. This Retelling Slider contains highly visual cues that are printed directly onto the retelling tool. Students slide a bead up and down the pipe cleaner as they retell, making retelling hands on and FUN!

THIS RESOURCE IS NOW DIGITAL, TOO! You'll receive a link in the PDF to add the Google Slides to your Google Drive!

The pack comes with 20 beginning reader passages that are specifically designed to coordinate with the Retelling Slider tool. Your students will read the short, decodable text three times for fluency. Then, they will draw and illustrate the characters, setting, and events of the text for retelling comprehension. Finally, let your students use the Retelling Slider to practice orally retelling the story, as well!

The pack also comes with coordinating posters in both black and white, and color. Additional retelling graphic organizers that directly align with the Retelling Slider are included, too!

Check out everything that is included in the pack:

This retelling pack is perfect for kindergarten readers and beginning of the year first graders. It would also be ideal for struggling second graders who require intense reading intervention instruction and practice. Special education and special intervention teachers will love the hands-on, visual appeal of these passages, as well as homeschooling families! Great for small groups, intervention, homework, morning work, additional reading reteaching and practice, and even as a retelling assessment!

I hope you LOVE this retelling pack as much as I do! Increase comprehension and fluency while adding hands-on, visual learning to your instruction.
