Last week we talked about retelling or summarizing stories. We talked about how all stories have a beginning, middle, and an end. In the middle of the story there are several events that occur. We also talked about when you summarize a story you share the important parts in your own words. Can you practice retelling/summarizing a story that you've read. It can be a story you read at school or at home. Tell me about the characters, the setting, the problem and solution. Make sure you think about the beginning, middle, and end! Tell the important parts... I can't wait to read about your story!
Here your child will have an opportunity to respond to a story that we read in class. This is a great way to get your child thinking about text & building his/her comprehension! Please encourage them to take part in this activity!
