Rain by Robert Kalan

Read the book Rain by Robert KalanEarly Literacy Aside--Example: It is really important for children to be able to tell and re-tell stories or ideas in chronological order. We are going to use this flannel board (Rain flannel board) to let the children re-tell the story we just read. Plus, they will see how each item affects the next one. This activity will help them develop their narrative skills which later helps them understand what they read. Flannel Board: Place pieces on the flannel board as the children retell the story. You can use some of the pieces from the flannel board pattern as a handout so that the children can retell the story at home. Submitted by Jaime Duval and Whitney Whitaker, Radford (VA) Public Library
