´╗┐Teacher Winnie stands in front of a smart board. A picture of two horses by a tipi appears.

Teacher Winnie is in her twenties, with long straight brown hair. She wears glasses and a blue Homework Zone T-shirt.

She says YOU CLICKED ON THE
HOMEWORK ZONE AND I'M TEACHER
WINNY HERE TO HELP YOU ON
READING COMPREHENSION.
NOW WHEN WE TALK ABOUT READING
COMPREHENSION WE'RE REALLY
ASKING YOU TO RE-TELL THE STORY
AND THERE ARE FIVE THINGS WE GOT
TO REMEMBER WHEN WE'RE
RE-TELLING THE STORY.

She clicks on the board and says THE FIRST THING WE WANT TO LEARN
IS WHO IS THE STORY ABOUT?
WHO ARE THE CHARACTERS IN THE
STORY?
AND THERE USUALLY IS A MAIN
CHARACTER IN THE STORY, YOU
DON'T HAVE TO LIST OUT ALL THE
CHARACTERS BUT MAYBE ONE OR TWO
MAIN CHARACTERS IN THE STORY.
AND THEN WE WANT TO SEE WHAT
NUMBER TWO IS, WE'RE JUST GOING
TO CLICK NUMBER TWO.
WHERE IS THE STORY?
WHERE DOES THE STORY TAKE PLACE?
AND THAT'S ALSO THE SETTING.
DOES THE STORY TAKE PLACE IN THE
FOREST?
DOES IT TAKE PLACE IN THE
SCHOOL, IN THE CLASSROOM?
THAT'S ALSO SOMETHING VERY
IMPORTANT TO PUT IN WHEN WE'RE
RECOUNTING OUR STORY.
THE THIRD THING IS WHEN DOES THE
STORY TAKE PLACE?
AND THAT USUALLY MEANS DOES IT
HAPPEN, WHEN DOES IT TAKE PLACE?
WHETHER IT WAS A LONG LONG TIME
AGO IN A FAR FAR KINGDOM OR
WHETHER IT WAS IN THE FUTURE IN
A GALAXY FAR FAR AWAY OR MAYBE
IT'S TODAY IN YOUR CLASS ROOM
SO WE ALSO WANT TO KNOW WHEN THE
STORY TAKES PLACE.
AND THEN WE ALSO WANT TO KNOW
WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT, THAT'S
USUALLY THE MOST IMPORTANT PART
OF THE STORY.
WHAT ARE THE EVENTS THAT HAPPEN
IN THE STORY AND HOW DOES THE
STORY GO FROM THE BEGINNING TO
THE MIDDLE, TO THE END.
AND FINALLY AND WE WANT TO TALK
ABOUT THE BIG IDEA IN THE STORY,
WHY DO YOU THINK THE AUTHOR
WROTE A STORY LIKE THIS AND
WANT TO WRITE A COUPLE OF
SENTENCES AND MAYBE JUST SHARE
OUR THOUGHTS ON WHY DO YOU THINK
THE AUTHOR WROTE THE STORY AND
WHAT'S THE MAIN IDEA.
SO I'M TEACHER WINNY AND
HOPEFULLY THESE FIVE STEPS WILL
HELP YOU WRITE A BETTER RECOUNT.
THANKS FOR WATCHING.
