What to do:
- Read a favorite story, such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
- Use a pad of flip chart paper or tape sheet to a wall. Be careful markers don’t bleed through and mark wall.
- Begin retelling the story by writing a word in the center of the sheet of paper.
- 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.
- As you go around the group, your story web will gradually grow.
