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 :-)
