My Students

My preschool students are learning at home. We zoom with the children twice a week. I make phone calls every week to see how they are doing. My students go online to get activities to do at home with their families.

My Project

These puppet stories will be fun for my students to hear when we zoom from home. I do not have any flannel stories for the children. These flannel stories will add some fun adventure of storytime for the children to listen too. It will also be another way for their comprehension. After hearing the story, they will be able to go back to the story to retell the story on their own.

I also was adding construction paper and pencils that they will have fun doing some projects after storytime.
