Summarising by retelling my story in order helps me because: it helps you remember what the story was about.
It was really hard when: remembering what step you did first so you know what step to do next.
Something that really helped me was: memorising the story because then it was easier to retell.
Something new I learned was: that summarising help you remember the story because you can look back at your piece of paper if you forget what happened in the story.
You are a fabulous reader and I love how you are so keen to share you thinking before and after reading. Thinking about what we know before we start reading helps us to get our brains ready for new ideas and it can help us to work out some new and tricky words.
Your next step is to increase reading fluency, this means to make your reading sound like talking. Reading the story more than once and recording then listen ing to yourself read can help with fluency. Remember to read the punctuation to build fluency.
