Number Stories Part 2!
June 16, 2021 | Felicity Greene
This week, the children continued working on their number stories. After deciding what the topic of their stories would be, the children began filling the page with their drawings.
The work done this week was all about finishing touches. The children worked to add words to narrate their stories, color in their illustrations, and create a cover page.
After all of this work has finally been completed, it is time for the last step– publishing! The children were so proud to see all of their hard work come together to form a book, and were eager to share their stories with friends.
Today, some children continued to add finishing touches to their stories while some published their stories.
“It’s a real book, I published it!”
The Girl and Her Friends
One Little Caterpillar
Keep an eye out Seesaw this week to see the rest of the completed number stories and to watch the children present their stories to their classmates!
