This worksheet is a template for students to draw out main events or details from a story. This can be especially helpful for English Learners who comprehend a story, but are still working on written English skills. This allows teachers to see what EL students know through what they can draw, and then explain orally.
There is a section under each blank box for students to write a short explanation in their own words, but this can be an extra or extended activity. The main idea is that students are able to retell a story through pictures.
This worksheet operates as a scaffold for students who still need practice summarizing a story. Students that have a better understanding of how to summarize a story will be able to comprehend what they read on a deeper level.
