Retelling a Narrative Story Activity
Description: Read a story (narrative) with your client. Fairy tales are great for this because they are so formulaic but other stories will work well, too! Read through once, then read through again but this time help the child fill out a story-retelling outline like this one. Talk about the setting, characters, events, problem, solution, and theme (if there is one). Then, ask the child to use that outline to retell the story. Help the child make sure that he/she includes all of the details on the outline.
