Today one of the children in my class came to me and said, 'Mrs King, I'd like to tell a story for the story square.' I asked her if it would be ok for me to type it as she told me the story so we could remember it. She agreed and told me, 'while you're getting ready, I'll keep all of the ideas in my head.' And here are all of those ideas that came flowing forth.
NB: A 'story square' is a technique we use where we invite a child to tell a story, and then they invite other children to be the characters in their story and act it out in front of the class in a 'story square' created with masking tape or chalk.
