Retelling Stories using 'Key' Ideas

This is a fun and creative way to have students retell key ideas from stories (K & 1st grade CCRL2). 

ELACCKRL2: With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, 
including key details. 

ELACC1RL2: Retell stories, including key details, and demonstrate 
understanding of their central message or lesson. 

After reading a story aloud, have students write key details on the key templates. One key detail per key. They can write on one side and illustrate on the other. **Note: I would copy keys on thick paper or card stock**

Once they complete each key detail, they cut the keys out and string them on either a chenille stem, pipe cleaner, ring hook, etc. Now, students have their story (in order), so they can retell the key details from the story. Click the image to get a copy from my TpT page. Thanks in advance:)
