Story Hunt

I lent one of my StoryWalks to a fellow StrongStart facilitator and she shared with me her idea of going on a Story Hunt.
She hid the pieces of The Very Hungry Caterpillar in the forest by her school and the families went hunting for them.  I decided to do the same thing with our Big Buddies.

The big buddies went out in the morning and hid the pieces. 
                     Then took their little buddies out to find them.
When all the pieces were found they headed back to the field so we could tell
                                            the story together.
As I told the story the buddies fed the pieces to a caterpillar, that I made from
                           a coffee can, until the butterfly came out.

              After the story hunt we spent a bit of time on the playground.
We finished with our Icky Sticky Bubble Gum song.  This is our last time getting together this year.  Our big buddies have been compassionate and enthusiastic partners.  We wish them the best in high school next year.
