This is a great way to help children with retelling a story. It builds comprehension, sequencing and it is fun! It is simple – on a long piece of bulletin board paper – draw a winding path. At the beginning of the path, draw a visual clue of the first event. I did this Storytelling Pathway in August when we were learning the story of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” I had the children tell me what happened first, second, etc and I drew the visual clues. After I drew the story, I let the children color it in and add any missing details. When we finished, children were given the opportunity to walk the Storytelling Pathway and retell the story to us!
