I have had the privilege of reading and working with many students. One area that I noticed students consistently struggle in is reading comprehension. This lead me to brainstorm on unique, engaging ways for students to retell a story, so I created “Story Pockets”. A program that brings reading comprehension, art, and silky goats to the classroom. These pockets contain “artifacts” of the story… important characters, events, the setting, etc. During the Story Pockets and Silkies program the children will have the story read to them, interact with a Mini Silky goat and help make story pockets. They will be able to keep these pockets and take them home to share and retell the story with their family.

Who: Kindergarten through 3rd Grade Students
