Camping Story Stones

Story Stones are something that I found on http://www.pinterest.com a long time ago. I have been wanting to try story stones in the classroom, but had never taken the time to make them. Finally, with the help of my daughter Emilea, we have story stones! I thought camping week was the perfect theme because we spend so much of this week making up stories to tell inside the tent and around our “campfire.” Today was the first day we used them and they are great! They can be used to tell a group story or an individual story. To introduce them today we passed around the basket full of camping themed story stones and each child took a turn making up their own camping story. They loved it and caught on so quickly! I see many many more story stones in our future! We also painted the logs for our group “campfire” we are making this week.
