Kids love telling stories! So, let's figure out a way to make that story telling happen always and forever? Parents are an integral part of story telling with kids.
This story telling activity is perfect for a wide age range of kids. Kids get to illustrate and write their first book! Plus you really only need Post-It notes.
How cool is that?
Great for elementary aged kids learning how to piece together the parts of a story.
Spectacular for younger children whose imaginations are running wild with picture stories and characters but don't have the writing skills yet.
Story Telling Activity for Preschoolers through Elementary
Kids can add words to their story or simply leave the plot to unfold in pictures. There are so much room for creativity with this language activity for kids. That is why kids adore it so much. There is no right way to do the activity. Let the kids' imagination go.
We did this activity in a simple way.
