Story Trails

What to do:

  1. Read a favorite story, such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
  2. Use a pad of flip chart paper or tape sheet to a wall. Be careful markers don’t bleed through and mark wall.
  3. Begin retelling the story by writing a word in the center of the sheet of paper.
  4. Go around the group and have each child tell the next part of the story. As each child tells a part, write a summary word and connect it to the previous word.
  5. As you go around the group, your story web will gradually grow.
