In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the children to hear a story. Pass out props, taking each out of the basket, one at a time, and saying:
This is a ______. We will hear about this in the story. Who would like to hold this carefully?
Take out the four number signs. Offer each to a volunteer, saying:
There are four important questions and answers in our story. Who would like to hold each number sign?
Then, introduce the story:
We will now read this story about a special girl named Sailimai. If you hear me say the prop you are holding, stand up and show everyone what you have. If you hear the question or the answer with the same number as your sign, stand up and show us your number.
Read/tell the story.
Afterward, ask each child to tell how their story prop was part of the story. Collect the props in the basket. Finish by asking the participants what is the strongest thing in the world (the answer is "love").
Process the story using these questions.
If any participants have physical challenges, form pairs to hold up props together.
