The Little Students That Could Tackle “The Little Engine That Could”

Early Learning Kindergarten students at St. Raphael have been getting hands-on while learning to retell stories in their own words.

This month, the class read “The Little Engine that Could” by Watty Piper. Afterwards, they recreated the story on a bulletin board using elaborate pop-out pictures and words.

Classroom teacher Mrs. Tripodi says “This activity helped them to solidify their understanding of retelling stories.”

Early Childhood Educator Mr. Vicedomini says the lesson had a two-fold purpose because the students also learned the values of optimism and hard work.
