Amazing! Fun Stuff to Build Comprehension!

If you have read the Little Red Hen this activity is amazing.
We made the characters and props.  Put them on sticks and the children practiced  "retelling" the story using EXPRESSION!  Wow, we had some amazing character voices.  Following that we read the story again.
What a difference.  So cute.  It was perfect for sharing how reading and rereading really can help make a difference.
Then if you are allowed to show UTube Videos this is a super retelling of the story.
The children the "wrote" the retelling of the story with Flip Books.
But best of all...the grains of wheat are sprouting in our straws.  YIPEE!
