One of the things I love about having a student teacher is I get to see some of the new strategies being taught in college. Mr. Brace had the 1st grade group complete a retelling strategy called the Retelling Rope. They had to make their way through the rope by taking off different questions and retell and answer the questions for the story. This was a fun, new, and interactive way to get the 1st graders thinking about the story and a great way for Mr. Brace to check story comprehension. It’s nice for the kids to be able to get different instruction from another teacher to help accelerate them in their reading!
