We always begin by reading the story from a book. Here, we are reading “The Three Little Pigs”.
Then the children get to choose familiar roles and act out the story for their friends using story props to help.
As a follow up we put the story parts on the flannel board so they can retell it on their own or with friends.
On Pajama Day they had fun retelling the story/song “There Were 10 in the Bed”!
Through this process we watch the children become part of the stories, interacting with the materials or props. This engagement creates a deeper, more personal understanding of the story as well as developing a feeling of self-confidence.
