Guidecraft give-away: Steve Light Story Box

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on July 27, 2012

in Give-Aways, Guidecraft: Story Telling Boxes

Since my students are out of school for the summer, I held off to open the Steve Light Story Box from Guidecraft until my three year old nephew came over to play.  I wasn’t so sure he would be all that into it, but boy was I mistaken…

The story telling box that I received to review contained the story of Rapunzel. My nephew and I sat down together to check out the box and while I read the instructions, my nephew opened up the box to see what goodies would be inside…

Once we identified all the pieces and what or who they were, I read the story (a story card is included inside the box) aloud and my nephew followed along by putting all the pieces of the story into play…

I don’t think my nephew was familiar with the story of Rapunzel, or at least he didn’t seem to be because he couldn’t understand why the box included a long braided strand of hair….

As I read the story of Rapunzel aloud, my nephew listened intently and I would pause along the way so he could set up or adjust the scene to fit with with the story…

The two parts my nephew loved the most was climbing the tall ladder to reach the top of the tower…

And then and “cutting” Rapunzel’s long hair with the pretend silver scissors (included in the box)…

My nephew stayed engrossed throughout the entire story and then wanted to play with the pieces and talk about the story some more.  He added a few of his own ideas to the story of Rapunzel along the way. You talk about a winning idea for getting preschoolers involved in the story telling process – this is about as good as it gets!…

Once we finished with the story, my nephew helped me put all the pieces back in the box. I can’t wait to share this with my class this fall…

Okay – so now on with the part you are really waiting for….
