Have children create a bracelet using a green bead for the beginning, a red bead for the ending and 3 or more other beads for the middle. As children retell a story have them slide a bead from left to right for the beginning and then another bead for each story component. With younger children I would use three detail (middle beads) however, you may wish to increase the number with older students.
When I read a story It has more than one part! The title and the author Are just the places I start! The setting, characters, and problem Are parts of the story, too! Beginning, middle, end, and solution Help me retell the story to you!
