Snoopy's Christmas

A few weeks ago I bought these at the Target $ Spot. Who doesn't love Snoopy. Anyway, I put them on the fridge and asked D to tell me a story about what was going on.

We started with just the title of our story.
A Snoopy Christmas.

Then I put the presents around the tree and then asked D what should come next. He wasn't sure where I was going with this so we just discussed putting the characters around the tree. Then I asked D again to tell me about the scene we made.

D said, "The dog came dressed as Santa."

"The dog, Snoopy, gave the bird a candy cane."

"Then Snoopy went sledding in his bowl."

"Snoopy was tired and slept on his dog house."

D also added the tree to this scene.

End of story.

I want to try this again in a few days to see if the story develops a little since now D understands the process.

This is a nice foray into assisted story telling. We do a lot of story telling here, and I just love listening to what Anna comes up with.
