Today I was working with a group of preschoolers. We were doing one of the Matt & Molly Stories - "A Frog in a Tree" (from the Animals pack).
If you saw my Facebook post last week, I had this idea to hang a ribbon from my closet door and attach the pictures from the stories with clothespins. (The story above is "A Rainy Day").
Back to the quote. In "A Frog in a Tree," Molly is eating ice cream when a frog jumps out of a tree and into her ice cream cone! The story explains that Molly is surprised. After telling the story, I took the pictures down and had the children place the cards in the correct sequence. Then I had the kids retell the story. One boy got up and did a fantastic job for most of the story. Here's how it played out:
Boy: Then the frog jumped in the ice cream. The End!
Me: How did Molly feel about that?
Me: I think the frog was hungry. (Here I did my absolute best "Home Alone" face) Molly felt...
Thanks kid, lol! He wouldn't be the first to call me crazy or silly, but probably the most memorable! How was your day today?
