Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

Tell the children they will create a story together, one sentence at a time. One player starts and each child adds a sentence until everyone has had a turn and the story feels complete. This activity can be done over and over to create many stories.

If you are doing this activity outdoors, suggest that the children create a story about the nature they see around them.

Including All Participants

Be sure everyone has a chance to participate, especially those who are quieter.
