Story time is common in all child care settings. But what do we do with these stories after we've read them to the children. How do we gauge their understanding of the plot, characters and setting?
This story board, done in clay, demonstrates how a group of four years old was able to retell the conclusion of the story, The Subway Mouse.
"The Mice were tired of living in the tunnels. They heard that at the tunnel's end there was a beautiful place and they wanted to get there to see the outside world. And it was nice!
They saw the moon and the city lights, the street and all of the trees."
