Have children create a bracelet using a green bead for the beginning, a red bead for the ending and 3 or more other beads for the middle. As children retell a story have them slide a bead from left to right for the beginning and then another bead for each story component. With younger children I would use three detail (middle beads) however, you may wish to increase the number with older students.
Maybe this should be my back to school bulletin board...but this would take some work!
Great way to re-purpose those old sliding side cribs that are now banned from re-use, instead of trashing it to the landfill. Wish I had this idea w/ our still fairly new crib. Ugh. What a waste. How to Use a Crib Rail as a Book Shelf via LivingWithLindsay.com.... or as a linens drying rack ;)
