We are learning how to retell a story -- this will lead to better comprehension of the stories that we read.

First we need to be able to identify the characters in a story as well as its setting. Then we determine the problem in the story and how the problem is resolved.

Next up will be making connections with the story. How one story is like another story that we read (a "text to text" connection) , and also how the story connects to our lives (a "text to self" connection).

Ask your child how Hare solved his problem! We have discussed this story at length, so your child should be able to tell you what happened.
