Retell a Favorite Story

Talk to your child about their favorite book. You might say,

I am thinking about a book that has 3 bears in it. It also has a little girl with blonde hair. Let’s see what we remember from this story The Three Little Bears.

Have them tell you about another book from home or school. Other books they may know:

Caps for Sale, Going on a Bear Hunt, There’s an Alligator Under My Bed, Pete the Cat, Three Billy Goats Gruff.

Then have your child draw a picture from the book you talked about

*This activity prompts oral language skills, writing skills and retelling a familiar story.
