If you’re looking for an entertaining, summertime activity to do with preschoolers or kindergarten students, get a copy of the book Where’s Spot? by Eric Hill. This book was originally published in 1980 and was the first book in the Spot series. This engaging lift–the-flap book will bring you and your students on Sally’s journey to find her pup, Spot, in the house so that he will eat his supper. It’s the perfect book to reinforce the Descriptive Sequence and focus on the Character and Setting icons using Braidy the StoryBraid.
After reading (or viewing on YouTube) the book, make a list of characters (Sally, Spot, bear, snake, hippo, bird, lion, monkey, alligator, penguin, turtle) with the students. You may then play a character game by describing the character and having the children try to guess which one you are describing. This could easily be expanded by having the children then draw an animal or give them an animal picture card and have them give clues to describe their picture.
Below is an activity we did in Kindergarten class:
You may also expand on this activity using Braidy the StoryBraid by retelling the story as an Action Sequence following Sally on her way to find Spot.
