When we talk about a story after reading it, we are helping children to remember what they heard. Using props to retell a story after you’ve read it can be a fun way for children to remember and internalize stories. You can use puppets or props around the house to act out a story. This strengthens comprehension and narrative, two skills that are important for success when your child is learning to read, and throughout his or her education.
