Share a story from when you were young.
Work with your child to create a story about a family event—big or small. Write the story with your child. Allow your child to write simple words. Help them find the beginning sound for the simple words.
Draw a picture to go with the story.
Have your child retell the story to you or other family members and friends.
MAKE IT EASIER:
Focus on the beginning sound and write one letter instead of an entire word
EXTEND THE LEARNING:
- Put pictures you drew for storytelling in an important place such as the refrigerator so you can revisit them.
- Find stories everywhere—even when you are out on an errand.
