Five Finger Retell

By third grade much of our reading time is focused on comprehension. I'm constantly checking to be sure students are reading for meaning and one way we do this is with the Five Finger Retell. Here is my retell glove. It was simply a winter mitten that was missing its match. I used velcro to attach the pictures that represent the parts of the retell. Someone put back on the wrong way, the correct sequence is characters, setting, problem, events, conclusion. I introduced this during shared reading and then it moved to the guided reading table, then finally students were able to use this strategy independently during reading response time.
