What educators are saying

This was a great resource to introduce retelling to my kiddos. They loved related it to ice cream and was a great visual aid for students.
I used this resource as a lesson planning tool for my interview with a new district. I loved the simplicity of this but also loved how thorough it was. And I got the job :)
Also included in
  1. Some learners struggle to retell both fiction and nonfiction. Some readers share too many details, making a retelling confusing while others might not share enough, making it difficult to understand even the main idea.This Retelling Bundle for BOTH fiction and nonfiction is so helpful for learners o

Retelling stories does not come naturally for some learners. They may include too many details or they don't even include the most important elements to the story.

That's where this fun, ice cream-themed story retelling pack comes into play. The acronym S.C.O.O.P. helps kids remember exactly what they need to include in the retelling of a story: setting, characters, oh no! (the problem), order of events, and problem solved (solution).

Plus kids will LOVE that they get to learn it all with ice cream scoops!
