Story Stones

During Maple Cross Explorers Group 3 and Group 5 have had the chance to make story stones. Group 3 used the story The Gruffalo and used their problem solving skills to share out the task. They spoke about having two of the same character when 2 children wanted to paint the same one, and also spoke about what they could do when theyran out of characters. Group 5 spotted a second book in Miss Crowley’s bag and decided to take a vote on which book they would like to use- They voted for Monkey Puzzle. Group 5 then also used their problem solving skills to come up with the solution of halving the image of the butterfly when 2 children wanted to use that character. Both groups enjoyed using their own creations to re-tell their stories.

  1. I really like the idea of story stones. I wonder what it would be like to have them. I have a question. Can you use stones for more than just telling a story??

    1. I think you can use stones in many different ways to help your learning. Why don’t you try using them to build a sentence?
