In my kinder classroom we continuously work on the skill of retelling. I find that it is a easier for the children to retell when:
The book they are reading is engaging and they have picture clues to help them verbalize the story. Many of my kinders come in needing more vocabulary development and I am continuously looking for ways to help them. How about you?
I love the Old Lady Series of books by Lucille Colandro and so do my kinders. These books are great for vocabulary development and for retelling.I made a cute little book for one of my reading groups based on the story, There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover! Included are the words and pictures for your pocket chart! I am sure your children will love reading and retelling this story over and over again.... getting practice for the important skill of retelling!
