The fifth and sixth graders cleverly combined the use of 5 fingers and 3 pigs. Through the month of October and November, these reading students in Ms. Scharich’s Title I class at Park Place have been working on learning the components of the 5 finger retell.
Before the Thanksgiving holiday they pulled all the skills together to do a big retell on the story of the 3 little pigs. Each student had his or her own version of the story.
5 Fingers and 3 Pigs
Students had to use the 5 finger retell to retell the version of the story they read.
Once they were able to do that, Ms. Scharich rewarded them with high five pens to take home. The pens, of course, had five fingers!
