Support beginning readers in building the foundation for reading comprehension with story elements and retelling cards. Students will build content vocabulary knowledge with the use of scaffolded story elements cards, as well as, practice their retelling skills with story cards from three different fairy tales.
(The Story Elements Cards are provided in full color AND in printer friendly black and white.)
Story Elements Vocabulary terms include: title, characters, setting, problem, solution, plot, beginning, middle and end
Vocabulary Cards for each of the story elements are color coded and include visual examples from the stories The Three Little Pigs, The Ugly Duckling and The Three Bears. Students match the visual from the story with the correct term.
>>> Perfect to use on a display or bulletin board! <<<
Retelling Cards for each of the fairy tales above are also included. Students sequence and practice retelling the stories during guided reading, or with a partner in an engaging center activity.
Do you have beginning English language learners? This resource would be perfect for them too! How do you get your beginning ELLs to increase their reading level? By explicitly teaching and practicing the skill of retelling!
A retelling "Story Map" graphic organizer is also included.
