Narrating is a challenge in our school year. So this year, I decided to try some new things to help. For several of our books , Froggy has been an alternate method of telling back to make it more interesting. For one of our history books, we created puppets representing the historical figures.
I printed them out from here and covered them with contact paper. Then Froggy cut them out. She insisted even with the cast on her dominate hand.
Here is a finished sample
It is still very early in our school year, but so far they are a wonderful addition and make narrating this book more fun for both of us.
