2. Matching Level with Story Strips- Give your student one of the BW story strips, and the matching story cards. Your student will describe each card as they match the story.

3. Three and 4-Step Sequencing Puzzles- Your student will student sequence, then tell the story as they describe each picture.

Intermediate Level:-

1. Three and 4-step Sequencing Cards and Mats – choose any picture card story. Each story is labeled with a title to help students find the pictures that go together. Your student will use the Sequencing Mats, sequence and then tell the story.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐This is great to use with my students with a sequencing/retell language goal! Great variety and lots of scaffolding provided to help across the spectrum of needs!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐These are great for a variety of goals! I love that there is the option of self-correcting puzzle piece strips, or sequencing each box.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Wow! This is super!! The children were really engaged and enthusiastic to put the pictures in the correct order and we also wrote some sentences for each picture. Thanks.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐This resource was perfect for my students attending ESY who are working on story retell. I love the leveled activities that can be used for mixed groups, or an individual student as they progress in narrative skills.
