Which is why , I rarely ask for a retell.Most kids can retell any story, they have a memory for that.I want them to make a inference, a thoughtful repsonse. Retells are like predictions, they don't really show me deeper understandings of a child's thinking. Inferences are at heart of making meaning.

This is a great family activity to do before school starts! Parents lead your children to discuss what makes a good friend and make the chart together. Throughout the year when friendship issue arise, refer back to this list to help your child process the makings of a good friendship. Parents can share stories of their friendships and what made the friendship special.
