Story telling ropes and roads / streets are super popular. Put a twist on the activity by adding a little bounce and getting the kids outdoors. Help students with reading comprehension by creating a winding path for them to bounce on as they retell a story. Draw different shapes and write key details inside of them (title, characters, narrator, setting, fact vs. fiction, main event, and chronological order - first, next, last). Kids plop on a jumping ball with handles, answering the key detail block they land on.
