!As we have been studying Mem Fox' books in our class, the children have begun to practice writing retellings of the books. After watching the teacher model a retelling of Koala Lou, the children then divided into partners and chose a different Mem Fox book to retell. They divided their papers into three section and referred to the attributes chart to make sure they had the details correct. They discussed what they should put into each section and how they should say it and then one of the partners began writing. Before you know it, they had an entire retelling!
