For Teachers Who Use Reading Street

        
Retelling An Egg is An Egg

 

Retelling

I’ve been thinking of fun and innovative ways to get my students involved in retelling(My school system uses Reading Street).

This year my own personal action research involves Comprehension Strategies, and retelling is very important  in comprehending text. So I’m thinking about creating a retelling station with activities students can use during Reading Workshop. This is going to be one of my “Have To” weekly assignments all students would have to complete. The first couple of times I’ll work with my students when they come for small group reading instruction on this task. Then I will release responsibility to them.

Directions for Teachers: Laminate the TV mat and the retelling pictures. Cut out the retelling pictures. Make copies of the retelling sheet. I plan to place the activity in a basket labeled “Weekly “Have To” Comprehension Assignment”.

For teachers who use Reading Street I hope you find these useful. I’ve completed all stories for Unit 3  and will work fast to complete the rest of the units(If you would find this type of activity useful). Please let me know your thoughts, would this activity work in your classroom?

  3. This is such a wonderful idea! I don't use Reading Street but being an ELL teacher I'm always looking for a new way if getting my students to talk more. This can be hard because my students tend to be shy since they are not familiar with English. Now I can have them retell their stories with visuals and guage their comprehention too! Very creative. Thanks!
