Do you read "Sneezy the Snowman", by Maureen Wright?
It’s one of my students’ favorite winter books, and perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story” standards.
With that in mind, I designed these quick, easy and fun storytelling slider craftivities. that will help your students retell the story in the proper order.
There are 3 “outside” slider options available. Pick your favorite or give children a choice. All of them are easy-peasy to cut, as they are in a rectangular shape; however, you can also choose to cut around the snowman. The “slider strip”
Check out the PREVIEW for samples.
Children color, cut & glue their slider strips together, then insert it into the “slits” of their cover.
As they pull on the end of the “slider” the various pictures go through the “window”, so that children can take turns retelling the story to a partner, then take their slider home to share with their family, once again practicing the lesson.
I’ve included full-color patterns for you, as well as a black & white templates for students.
As an easy & interesting way to assess comprehension, I’ve also included a “Let’s sequence the story” worksheet, where students color and trim the picture tiles then glue them in the correct order.
Use the teacher’s colorful copy to sequence the story as you read it, then again as a review afterwards. Pass out the tiles to your students, and as you read that section, the child holding that picture places it on the grid. (Use magnet or Velcro dots to stick them on.)
For writing practice, there’s also a “Here’s What Happened…” writing prompt worksheet, as another way to check comprehension, plus practice sequential writing; hopefully using a variety of ordinal numbers and other transitions.
Use the colorful template to do this as a whole group activity with younger kiddos.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy making a slider as much as mine do.
