Noting Details anchor chart. Each student got to be a reporter and look for details in the story that they could write on their own "reporter's notebook" paper.

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.
