    Hi Friends,

    I have a few kiddos that are struggling with characters and setting. Any ideas for helping them with this?

    I do a retelling center, and most of my kids LOVE it, but the 2 that don't understand characters and setting are really struggling...

    Any tricks you use or lessons that have helped it click for your kids would be greatly appreciated!!

    :)

    For main character, I have the students pick out who is basically on every page of the book - this generally works for kindergarten level books - just my ideas.

    I always start with the fairy tales and nursery rhymes because those are very easy to identify the characters and setting in.
