Here is a seasonal preschool tree activity that your child will love!
Learning about trees is super exciting for preschoolers.
Include art and a fantastic book about trees and now you have a dynamic activity that motivates children to learn. and also helps them remember what was taught.
This month Lu from The Mamas Workshop and I were able to collaborate with two other creative bloggers.
This means you have FOUR different ways you can incorporate a story retell for perhaps the most beautiful peek-through book we’ve ever read.
What is a 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 is IN a Book Box?
Props to retell the story
WHY Use a Book Box?
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to:
With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details.
With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
With prompting and support, identify characters, settings, and major events in a story.
No, thank you.
Build up your preschoolers confidence for when they have to meet these rigorous standards.
SETTING UP THIS BOOK BOX WAS SO MUCH FUN!
