storytelling in first grade

during the summer we blogged about storytelling in the classroom.
jessica kicked off the school year introducing her storytelling string.
each day she shared a story with her first graders. {the class loved this}
jessica asked her class...

her class got to make their own storytelling strings. this was a simple activity using index cards and string.
jessica read the story...
happy storytelling!
