story cards-try this Tuesday

To help kids tell a story:
make some cards with photos/ pictures / signs for:

people your child knows
places they go
activities they do there
transportation
feeling faces (happy/sad/ surprised/ hot/ ill/ cold
weather
days of week

Then, after going somewhere, pick out cards which match what you did, and use them as prompts to help them tell the "story" of what they did

This is a wonderful idea. So hard to get answers to, "How was your day?" and I think this would really help. Thank you!
