Respond to books by creating new story scenarios with this paper plate story spinner.
Choose a book or story with multiple characters to read aloud as a class. Take turns reading by "Snaking It." With classmates, students choose a curvy path around the room to include everyone. Read one sentence and then the next person in the path reads. Continue until everyone has read, then begin again.
Using Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils or Color Sticks, students divide a small paper plate into pie-shaped sections. Have adult assistance available if needed. Students write the name of a character from the story you read in each pie piece. Make the letters distinctive and colorful.
Attach the small plate to a large paper plate by poking a hole through the center with a brass paper fastener. Secure the fastener on the back.
On the rim of the large plate, students write the book title and author. Then add more lines with colored pencils or color sticks to divide the remaining space. Fill with events and actions from the story.
With a small group of friends, children take turns spinning your story wheels and sharing the characters' new actions. Match characters with events and actions. Create new story scenarios to share with classmates. Turn favorite scenarios into original picture books written and illustrated using colored pencils or color sticks.
Create a 3-D braille chart simply with Crayola® School Glue, Markers and paper.
