Retell a Familiar Story
For our first mini-lesson during daily five/cafe today, we practiced one of the first strategies we learned, "retell a familiar story". I handed each student a picture from Eric Carle's book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. While reading through the story, we practiced retelling it with each picture. Each student brought their picture up and placed it in the pocket chart when we said their part of the story. We also discussed how using these pictures to practice retelling also used another strategy "use pictures to tell a story". We were excited to practice a few of our older strategies in working with comprehension.
