Shape Go is a visual to aid in retelling stories. It includes characters, setting, problem/goal, events, and ending. It can be used for any elementary grade level. There is a Smartboard presentation to guide through the process, and the shapes can be printed for individual use. They can be cut apart and glued in notebooks or laminated. In the primary, we introduce one shape at a time and spend a week or two on each element. For intermediate grades it can be used as a review and then an individual tool for doing a comprehensive summary of a story.
