Reading Strategy- Retelling

The teacher sits with a students one on one and reads a book to the child. The teacher then asks the students to retell the story aloud. While the student is doing this the teachers is scoring the child on their retelling skills. I chose this book to do with this strategy because I think that no David will be a easy story to remember and because it is funny and interesting hopefully the child will be able to remember the story better.
