In one of our classes for international preschool alumnae and returnees, we are reading a chapter each week from The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, a great read-aloud that I recommend highly. At certain points in the book, I ask the children to demonstrate comprehension by sketching a quick picture on the whiteboard of the scene we are reading about. Here are a few from chapter 1.
Mr. Shoemaker's Toolhouse on Fire
The Herdmans Stealing Five Dozen Doughnuts
The Herdmans' Mean, One-eyed, One Short-Legged, Broken-Tailed Cat
