|Emily retelling the story Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato|
After she had retold the story with pictures--we got out a potato and some little people, and we acted out the story.
I also made a story map incorporated these pictures. A great way to help first graders and even kindergartners begin to understand story elements and story structure.

Or if you rather, students can draw the images for a story map.
