Here’s the Scoop! Acronym to Help With Retelling

Retelling is a skill that helps students develop their comprehension, memory, and communication abilities. It involves summarising or recounting a story or text in their own words. To make this process easier to remember, the SCOOP acronym is a great guide.

SCOOP stands for:

  • Setting
  • Characters
  • Order of Events
  • Oh no! The Problem
  • Problem Solved

This acronym provides a structured framework for kids to understand and retell stories effectively. This printable SCOOP poster is the perfect addition to your retelling classroom display.

Activities Using SCOOP

  1. Story Maps: Create visual story maps with your students, breaking down the key elements of SCOOP for a specific story. This visual aid will help them organize their thoughts for retelling.
  2. Role Play: Encourage students to act out scenes from the story to deepen their understanding of the characters, objectives, and obstacles. This interactive approach makes the retelling process more exciting.
  3. Storytelling Circles: Arrange students in small groups and have them take turns using SCOOP to retell a story to their peers. This promotes discussion and helps children refine their retelling skills.
