This activity can be used with grades K & 1:
ELACCKRL2: With prompting and support, retell familiar stories,
including key details.
ELACC1RL2: Retell stories, including key details, and demonstrate
understanding of their central message or lesson.
After reading a story aloud, have students write key details on the key templates. One key detail per key. They can write on one side and illustrate on the other. **Note: I would copy keys on thick paper or card stock**
Once they complete each key detail, they cut the keys out and string them on either a chenille stem, pipe cleaner, ring hook, etc. Now, students have their story (in order), so they can retell the key details from the story.
