Recently I have been thinking about what a great center activity retelling might me. So, I came up with a way to organize your reading retell materials.
I found this bin at Michaels, but there is a similar one from Amazon. You can click HERE to see it.
Then I put each book in its own box within the case. I typed the titles of the books on labels and added those to the sides. I also took the unit retelling cards from our Guiding Readers and added them to the top as a visual reminder for students.
The can take the cards out and review the text.
Then put the cards in sequential order.
These cards are showing cause and effect details from the text.
Students are asked to put the phases of the moon in order.
You can grab the label for the front of the bin by clicking on the picture below.
Somehow having these cards neatly stored together makes my heart happy!
