Tell Me About It
This week we have been focusing on how to retell storylines. We are moving on from simply recalling the main idea to covering more events and adding more detail. To do this we needed to think about how retelling is different to reading the story.
We also discovered what good retellers do. They...
-find key words
-retell to a partner -
-go back and re-read if we are unsure.
To help us keep on track we used some cards which you can see above. We got into pairs and practised reading a page, then retelling it in our own words.
