Product Description
This is an easy activity to have your class do to practice retelling a story. It is a piece of construction paper, or regular paper dependent on your preferences, that you divide up into sections for the story. For the story I used with my class, we had six sections divided up on the paper. I found clipart pictures that went along with our story and printed them out so that students would be able to use those to assist them in retelling the story, or for my more advanced students, they could draw their own pictures form the story. The students all have to write a minimum of one sentence in each divided section so that they are retelling the story in a chronological manner. This allows the students the chance to work on their handwriting, creating, and retelling the story while they are doing this activity. I differentiated this activity by the my reading groups. For example, my lower reading was already given the sentence for each box, so they had to use the clipart pictures, color them, cut them out, and glue them in the correct box on the sheet. My on-level reading group were given 3 of the 6 sentences in the boxes and had to color, cut, and glue the pictures in the correct boxes and write the remaining three sentences to finish the retell. My above grade level students were not given any sentences, so they had to color, cut, and glue the pictures in the correct order and create their own sentences for the retell. This activity can be done in reading time or as a reading group activity, whatever fits your needs most. I hope that this works as well for you as it did for my class!
