Act It Out
When my kids were young, one of their favorite activities was acting out stories with which they were familiar. At times, when I tired of reading these favorite stories "just one more time", we would put a new spin on it by acting it out. We acted out many bible stories, movies and favorite books. Some of our favorites included David and Goliath, The Walls of Jericho and The Fox and the Hound. This is a great activity for young kids as it helps them to comprehend the story, it helps them to internalize it, and it helps them to communicate it back. These are all skills they will need later and will help them become better students and communicators.
