Retelling Theater

Retelling Theater

Students use the Retelling Theater to retell any story we have read in the library, in the classroom or a story their parents read with/to them at home. 

Students use puppets to act out and retell stories or poems of their choice.

Retelling Theater performance

This is a fun way for students to practice sequencing stories, describing characters or setting, and building their self confidence in public speaking. 

  

SmartBoards
