Parts of a Story

We have been learning about the parts of a story and the vocabulary that names those parts. Knowing this language helps us be able to talk about the stories we read. We are also learning to summarize the stories we tell both orally and in writing. We learned that retelling and summarizing are different. Retelling is when you retell everything that happened in a story and summarizing is when you only tell the most important parts. This has led to some great discussions about determining what is important in a story. Ask your child to tell you about the chart below that we use in class to help us remember the parts of a story.

Reading ~ Read a good book or two.
Math ~ Home Link 5.12 What's My Rule?

We have library tomorrow. Please help your children remember to return their books so that they will have some new books to read on the upcoming long weekend.
