Every Monday we sit in a circle and pass the story stick. Each child gets a turn to say what they did over the weekend. Only the person holding the stick gets to talk and the others need to be good listeners. After this I model how to write in a journal. I put on classical music, they draw pictures and “write” in their journals.
