We follow the Virtual book club and have adapted Mama Miss' Storytelling beads http://www.mamamiss.com/2015/08/13/story-telling-beads/
for Bill Martin, Jr's book Brown bear.
We made a bracelet with the some beads and my son used it to tell the story.
Please excuse the PJs he likes to do activities like this in the morning.
The bead jars was a brilliant idea the only reason we did it this way was that we had to work with the equipment that we had at home.
