Valentine's Book Box Story Retell
Inside: Preschool Valentine's Day Book and Valentine's Day Activity
Who is more willing to spread love than a preschooler?
True story. My preschooler still tells me "Happy Mother's Day" numerous times throughout the day. True, some of these times, is to get a pack of gummies, but I'll take it.
Preschoolers simply have the sweetest little souls.
So who better to prepare and celebrate Valentine's Day with than them?
You will adore these two Valentine's Day Books that Lu from The Mama Workshop and I have picked out. We read a lot of books as we were deciding and these two were hands down, THE BEST.
What is a book box?
A book box is a way to retell a familiar story. All the supplies needed are stored in one box. Hence, BOOK BOX. Clever, huh? Check out our very first book box here.
What is in a Book Box?
- Familiar book
- Props to retell the story
- In this particular story retell, we are pulling ideas from our world and relating it to the book read.
Why Use a Book Box?
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to:
- With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details.
With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
With prompting and support, identify characters, settings, and major events in a story.
No, thank you.
Yes, please! Build up your preschoolers confidence for when they have to meet these rigorous standards.
This is a fun, interactive way to begin practicing this skill with your preschooler.
