Finding Our Stories in Classroom Materials

Throughout the year we have asked the children on various occasions to “find a story” in paint, blocks or even creation station. Then we started asking them to “Tell us a story from your weekend..” when they were writing in their journals. Over the past few weeks we have focused on the parts of a story, and today we asked the children to find and tell us a story through their play. The tables were sent with different materials inviting the children to create a story using some imagination and creativity. We heard stories pop up all over the classroom. We are thrilled the invitation to tell us stories was so successful! We will continue this throughout the week before beginning the recording stage.  

“Ask Me About”

  • Whose last day was it ? (Lianna)

  • What was your story you found in materials today?
