Listen & Tell: A New Kind of Classroom Secret!

Tip – Use famous and fun stories to practice memory skills with your students.

Read a well-known story to your students like The Three Bears, The Hungry Caterpillar, The Three Little Kittens, Green Eggs and Ham, Blueberries for Sal or one of your own favorites. Then ask for a student to tell the story back to you. As all the other students listen, encourage them to listen to the whole story and then comment at the end on any part(s) of the story that were left out.

Parenting Insight…

Help your original storyteller as much or as little as is necessary to tell the story. That is one way you can use and enjoy your coaching role as a teacher.
