What the Expert Says:

The storybox is a strategy to help young readers with comprehension.  By collecting items related to a preselected story are shared when reading the story to your students.  If you can find the item, you can use a picture to represent it.

Below is a link for some books that loan themselves to creating a storybox.  Also, once you do a few, turn it over to the students.  For example, put together a backpack or special box.  Write up a brief description of what a storybox is and why it is important.  Then give step-by-step directions on how to create one.  Then send it home with a child.  Give them a week to work with their parent to make their own storybox.  Then they can bring it in to share with the course.  You can read the story and the student can pull out the ideas.  Then send the activity home with another child.  This way you have storyboxes all year long.  Make it a fun activity!

Hope this helps.
