I made this FREE “Create-A-Story” slideshow that you can download and use. I share it in “edit” mode (instead of “present” mode) and have the kids choose the setting from the left of the 1st slide and the characters from the right of the 1st slide. Then I copy-and-paste their selection to the 2nd slide and then use “duplicate” (in the right-click menu) on the 2nd slide to make the remaining slides. For some patients I’ll also switch (using alt+tab if they’re open in different windows or ctrl+tab if they’re open in different tabs in the same window) between the slideshow and this FREE digital narrative grammar worksheet based on this 5-finger story retell strategy.
Here are some more ideas and tools for narratives.
