Story retelling is at the center of the units. Retelling helps develop skills needed for summarization in higher grades. With prompting and guidance, children in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st grade can identify characters, setting, and major events in a story through retelling.
Story retelling allows children to actively participate in a story, increasing language development, comprehension, and interest in literature and learning to read. Puppets also give children a chance get creative and tell their own version of the story.
