Reformulation, re-construction : comprendre, entendre, s’approprier un texte complexe

Abstract : This paper first describes the structure and the misleading features of a French version of Peter Rabbit, which pre-school children are invited to tell in shared storytelling. Examples of the children’s productions are examined, to show how the children rely on the text, but also on peer production, for their joint narrative. The aim of this paper is, on the one hand, to analyse the children’s expression of their understanding of the story and its issues, as well as of the pleasure they take in hearing and telling it by themselves. On the other hand, this analysis will help emphasize the impact of story telling on language acquisition. This paper also aims at pointing to possible guidelines and linguistic tools for teacher training in order to help teachers take advantage of their observation of the children’s repetition and recasts of the story.
