Mastering the Art of Retelling – Digital Resource for Students

Retelling is a fundamental skill that students need to develop to become proficient readers and effective communicators. Being able to summarize and recount the main elements of a story or text not only aids in comprehension but also supports language development.

To help students enhance their retelling skills, an experienced teacher has created this valuable digital resource that includes several differentiated templates for students to use when retelling a story.
