Children love to discover the world with their senses; they love stories; they love to play!
Story trays use a preschooler’s natural enthusiasm for sensory play and stories by telling stories in the tray and inviting them to retell the story with creative materials.
It is an intermodal expressive arts tool that can be used to relay a variety of concepts to the young learner.
In our Cat and the Hat story trays, students are provided with an engaging way to present the story line of the book in a meaningful and personal way.
For this activity, we used a back drop of the two children in the story, combined with figurines of the Cat and Thing One and Thing Two, red boxes, red blocks, and our imaginations to retell the story!
