Initially, all four-year-olds will require support with activity retells. However if after a period of teaching they appear anxious or produce inadequate information then they may need additional support and repetition to further develop their skills. That’s why we have created Developing News Telling and Narrative Skills for 4-Year-Olds.

For students with delayed language it is recommended that concrete visual aids are used to assist in the organisation and sequence of the news telling. Initially, the retells will need to occur directly after the activity, this way the materials are still present to be used as visual cues and the sequence is relatively fresh. Before commencing the activity it is recommended that the task is demonstrated step by step and explained using the language that is to be targeted in the retelling by the students.

This program has been developed by Speech Pathologists for use in the classroom or home instruction, to help parents and teachers instruct 4-year-olds oral language skills in the following areas: activity retells, show and tell (or object descriptions) and event-based news.
