Shadow Story Telling
Earlier this week, children worked with photographs that they had captured during last week's "shadow walk" to create cutout images of the shadows.
Many children expressed interest in using the cutouts as "shadow puppets".
Today, during morning meeting, we incorporated the shadow cutouts into a story telling experience.
Each child had a turn to choose a shadow image and imagine how that image could support the storyline.
To help you better understand the process of our work today, here is a clip of Wilder having a turn to add his input to the story.
