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 kiddos 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 of my friends. 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!
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!
But wait, there’s more! There’s more! 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 pack is perfect for kindergarten readers and beginning of the year first graders. It would also be ideal for very at-risk second graders who require intense reading intervention instruction and practice. 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.
