Reading Retelling Strategies
I honestly don’t know who developed this particular strategy so I will tell you – it wasn’t me. But I wanted to make it more of a tactile activity so I took the strategies and modified them to assist my kids’ learning styles.
The strategies are based on shapes. The triangle is for the beginning of the story, the rectangle/square is for the middle of the story and the circle is to sum up the story.
I used my Cricut to create the simple shapes out of metallic colored cardstock. For my daughter, I made a folder out of 12×12 card stock and a couple decorations – not too much because it is going into her backpack and will need to stand up to some abuse.
The shapes are approximately 6 inches tall each. I did make smaller, pocket sized version for Anthony – and his are laminated.
