"Are You My Mother' Sequencing Activity

I'd like to do more Charlotte Mason style narration with the girls (having a child retell a story they've just read (or heard) in their own words).  The book 'Are You My Mother' seemed like a good place to begin- since we've read it about a million times!

To add an extra wrinkle, I scanned a few pictures from the book and printed them off for M to put in the right order.  When she had them arranged, I had her tell me the story using the pictures as a help.  Right now, she's up in her room with the pictures in a plastic baggie, preparing to tell the story to her stuffed animals  :-)

As a fun side note, I just saw that Jenae over at I can Teach my Child did an Are You My Mother Sensory Tub today.

What a fun idea - my 3 year old loves to read books back to me...I think she'd love to do something like this.

That's very fun that she does it naturally on her own!

This is a great idea! I think my kids would love to do some sequencing with scanned pictures from a few of their favorite picture books!
