Last year I made these retelling slides. My students love using them for retelling a story and I can see that the practice has made a difference now that I'm assessing with the DRA2.
I started with a large graphic that I found in Scholastic's Biggie Patterns book.
Next I copied the pattern onto card stock, cut it out and colored it. A wonderful parent volunteer helped with this. I made the slides in two formats. One slide has setting, characters, problem, solution, and the other slide has Beginning, Middle, End.
I have 11 of each type so that in my class of 20 (sometimes up to 22), they can be used during partner reading. These are easy to make, provide a fun way to practice retelling and the children love using them!
