    Telling Stories

    Overview

    Children will take turns adding to stories.  You can pick a topic and start off by saying “Once upon a time…” and then take turns embellishing and extending the story.  The goal is to pay attention to details, attend to one another while building their working memory, focusing their attention, and practicing self-control.
