What is a preschool book box?
A book box is a way to help your preschooler retell a familiar story. It has supplies that can act as props for story retells.
What’s inside the book box?
- Familiar book
- Props to retell the story
Why should I use a book box with my preschooler?
By Kindergarten, many children will be asked to:
- Retell familiar stories, including key details.
- Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
- Identify characters, settings, and major events in a story.
Master now? Nope. Not yet. Expose now? You got it! This is a fun, interactive way to begin practicing this skill with your preschooler.
