String Story Necklaces
Learning to sound out words is just one part of learning to read. Kids also need to be able to understand what they’re reading. In teacher terms, this is called “comprehension”. Of course, tell your kid you’re going to spend the afternoon working on comprehension and you’re sure to get a “ho hum”. This activity delivers the goods with a fun art project that will also teach kids to look for a story’s beginning, middle, and end.
What You Need:
- Story book, any length will work
- 3 large index cards
- Enough string to make a loose necklace
- Pencils, crayons or markers
