A new year brings new challenges and opportunities for learning. More books, more words, more writing, math talks and morning messages....

During the season of Advent, Ms. Val and I used the Nativity Story to introduce parts of a story. We identified the setting, the characters (or people), and what happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story. The children really enjoyed learning about the Christmas Story and the events that took place - their understanding of the elements within a story were astounding!!!
Try identifying parts of a story at home when you snuggle up and read with your little!
We used images from a special video about the Christmas Story to put events in proper sequence.
