Bring your concept books magically alive by turning them into Story Boxes!  When I created these books, I intentionally chose realistic images of objects that can be commonly found around the home or at school.  Using real objects that your student can tactually explore aids in conceptual understanding by enabling real life connections.   Gathering a few real objects that represent images or important concepts from the story can help a child make important associations as they manipulate and explore the object while reading.  

Make it magical by playing a game, making a craft or using food!
