STORY STRETCHERS or EXTENSIONS are used to reinforce a story. They can include a variety of activities that are DAP for young children. The story stretchers can be included in various learning centers in child care centers and preschools. This was one of my students' favorite activities!
LCD Projector and computer, books, paper, crayons, markers.
In small groups (3-4 students), the students will create a story stretcher activity for a children's book.
Assessment for this unit will be the Story Stretcher project each group completes.
