Since my storytelling wheels have been so popular, I thought it would be fun to design one for the Nativity.
Great for parochial schools, Sunday school, Christmas Around the World
activities, or simply for your own child.
are a quick, easy & fun way for students to practice the “retelling & sequencing”
a story standards.
There are 3 “print & go” cover options
to choose from.
Pick your favorite, or give students a choice
There are full color patterns to use for an independent center
, as well as a sample to share, plus a black & white pattern, so students can make their own.
After students have completed their wheel, practice retelling the nativity story using the manipulative.
Everyone starts by turning their wheel so that Mary & Joseph, who are traveling to Bethlehem, appear in the “pie-slice window”.
Call on a child to begin the story. Continue to turn the wheel, calling on different students to tell you that portion of the story, explaining the “picture prompt”.
Afterwards, have students pick a partner and take turns sharing their nativity wheel with each other. Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies
This is a quick, easy & fun way to check comprehension
For more sequencing & retelling
practice, I've also included a nativity puzzle
. There are two "base" options
, which will help practice ordinal numbers
as well as reading.
For writing practice, have students complete the “Here’s What Happened” writing prompt worksheet
, then color it.
There’s a full color template so you can quickly & easily make an example to share, or do as a whole group activity
with little ones.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you and your students enjoy “turning & learning”.
