20+ Super Fun Preschool Book Retell Activities

20+ Super Fun Preschool Book Retell Activities

Does your preschooler love reading? 

Here are 20+ powerful ways to introduce character, plot, setting, and sequence of events with your preschooler. 

Retelling a story with my preschooler is my favorite. I know from my experience in education that my preschoolers will be asked to:

  • With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details.
  • With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

  • With prompting and support, identify characters, settings, and major events in a story.

Every month I team up with bloggers around the globe to share the very best preschool activities for retelling a book. 

From food retells, to art projects, here are the very best 20+ preschool book activities:
