Better Together: I have a Story Elements and Retelling BUNDLE for sale that combines this power point with my Story Elements and Retelling (poster/organizer) Packet. Check it out and save!
This Power Point Unit introduces what retelling is, why it is important, and how to write a retelling. The PPT integrates information about story elements and how they are related to retelling.
It is recommended to divided up the PPT over 4 to 5 days.
The PPT includes a complete modeled demonstration using the book Too Many Tamales by Gary Soto. You can complete the lesson without this book, but it is a plus if the book is previously read to students. Many of you may already have it in your classroom or school. If you have a copy of this book, read it to your class before presenting the PPT information.
There is a review and a suggested independent practice to end the unit.
