Completing the Retell Step

The Retell step helps students develop the skill of retelling or summarizing text, and holds them accountable to read for meaning.

The Retell step is only available in some series. In the Phonics series, students complete a Word List step instead of the Retell step.

  1. On the Retell step, the student retells the story by typing in the text box. The student can click Review Story to review the story while writing. The Retell step has a time limit. The timer starts when the student begins typing in the text box.
  2. Once the student has finished typing or the time limit is reached, he or she clicks Next to continue.

Students can advance to the next step once they retell the story by typing in the text box.
