Product Description
Retelling is an important skill for readers to learn. In grades K-2, students should be able to RETELL the events of FAMILIAR stories (according to Common Core). This changes in 3rd grade where students then need to be able to RECOUNT events in a story (this would be anything that they have read on their own).

This unit uses visual cues (puzzle pieces) to help students retell stories- There are five pieces to the puzzle of Retelling-

Characters
Setting
Problem
Events
Solution

Activities included are:

Retelling Robin- Read Aloud Class Book
I use this read aloud to introduce the retelling puzzle. Each piece of the puzzle is explained in this read aloud.

Anchor Charts
These can be hung around the classroom for a visual reminder of how to retell a story.

Large Puzzle Pieces
These puzzle pieces serve as a visual reminder of how to retell a story. I put them on my whiteboard and keep them up all year long. We use them often to help us retell stories.

Student Bookmarks
These student bookmarks are great to keep in book boxes so that students have access to them at all times.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff Student Book
This is a ten page book of the familiar story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff (also available in black and white). Read it together as a class and practice retelling using the puzzle pieces. There is also a page with the events of the story and the students can cut out the pieces and put them back in order.

The Little Red Hen Student Book
This is a ten page book of the familiar story of The Little Red Hen (also available in black and white). Read it together as a class and practice retelling using the puzzle pieces. There is also a page with the events of the story and the students can cut out the pieces and put them back in order.

Worksheets for Retelling Stories
Copy this worksheet front to back. Students can write about the Characters, Setting, Problem, Events, and Solution of any book using either pictures or words.

Partner Chit-Chat
Get a buddy and practice retelling! Use this checklist to cross off each puzzle piece as you read and retell with a partner.

Retelling Rubric
Need documentation? Use this rubric to see if your students are able to retell familiar stories.

RTI Documentation
Have students struggling with this skill and need more specific intervention? Use this documentation - just add in the dates that you teach each activity and write down any notes.

Retelling Tab Book
This is a fun top tab book for students to make. They can either draw pictures or write about the 5 different parts of a retelling.
