This ppt and retelling cards are excellent for getting students speaking and practicing a vital skill - recounting events. 

The narrative is simple and students can also just try putting the cards in order. Do as a whole class or in groups/pairs.  Alternatively, this can be a writing activity and use the cards for students to cut and paste into a small comic book they make and write the captions for. 


See the book version of this on giflingua books. Register as a teacher and you'll get a Download button. Download the book as a ppt to show in class, print as flashcards for story retelling etc...


Here is the Gif ppt version. Book here.   Also - delete the text in the ppt and then print the ppt as slides and get students to write their own version of the story, their own narration.
