With this activity, my students were able to retell and recreate the story. I started with a piece of green card stock paper (we had an abundance in our room for some reason) and folded it almost in half. I left room at the top for the sentence, "I see ____ in the tall, tall grass." Then I let the kiddos choose their favorite critters from the story and let them glue them in the grass. After they were done, they were able to peek through the grass and tell me what they saw using the prompted sentence, "I see ___ in the tall, tall grass."
This was a great story and activity to target:
using complete sentences
etc., etc., etc.!
I created the critters using Graphics Factory. You can download my 3 page document to go along with the story for free!
I saw in a recent post that Jenn from Crazy Speech World created an articulation activity that would also go great with this story... I think I may use this one next week :)
