Do you have students who can decode well, but when they try to retell the story... it becomes disorganized?
I have adapted a format that Dr. Carol Barsby introduced me to. I have made multiple copies and my students hold these shapes in their hands as they retell the story. Great for buddy reading, independently, or in my small group.

I will try to post photos of these shapes in action next week.
