This year I chose to loop up with my kindergarteners from last year. We’ve only been in school for 14 days and my students have already made amazing progress as readers and writers! We will be beginning literacy stations very soon and I would like to implement a retelling station so that the students can have oral practice on retelling familiar stories focusing on sequence of events as well as the story elements. Having vibrant retelling felt pieces that match the stories they adore will create a fun, interactive, and effective retelling station for my first graders!
My students work in literacy workstations daily. During workstations, the students are working on improving their reading and writing skills. One important skill that my students need improvement on is on retelling. These storytelling kits will allow students to work with a partner in reading or listening to a familiar book. Then the students will work together in retelling the story using the felt pieces and their felt story boards! Young children learn a lot through play! My students will definitely feel like they are playing while using these storytelling kits. I can already envision them treating this center more like a puppet show! It will be a big hit with my first graders!
