How you use story stones is really up to your own imagination, however, here are some ideas to get you started:
Colour the black & white story stones with coloured permanent markers, or highlighters (for a wipe-clean option).
Select one or a few stone(s) to inspire your child's creative story writing (verbal or written).
Tell a whacky bedtime story by flipping the stones over and choosing a stone at random to suddenly introduce into the story!
Read the matching book while encouraging your child to find each story stone as they're introduced. This adds a tactile/more engaging experience to a story.
Recap the series of events in a narrative that's been told, by lining up stones in the correct order.
Practise using adjectives/enhance vocabulary by choosing a story stone and describing it with as much detail as possible (written or verbally).
Sort story stones into categories, for example, colours, non-living & living, hard & soft, etc.
If you're really stuck for ideas, don't worry! The Story Stone activities are designed to encourage both parent/teacher lead and independent learning. It includes tasks such as: counting, letter formation, sentence writing and reading, sound to letter connections, colour matching, colouring, find-a-words and heaps more!
