A Stitch in Time (K-1)Natalee and her sidekick puppets will have your students counting along with her interactive stories that provide development for relational communications. The stories cover counting to five and to nine. These stories (with a STEM focus) teach problem solving, persevering, reasoning, and use of structure within a story. Choices, consequence and relationships are also intertwined in the lessons.
The three closing points in the stories are: a Stitch in time saves nine, Union gives strength, and Understanding different viewpoints.
Natalee ends with a short presentation on bees and an example of a real bee hive. The main stories told are:
5 Quarreling Brothers (Aesop fable) Focusing on the number 5. Includes discussion of cooperation, strength and team work
5 blind men (India folk tale) includes communications regarding understanding of others' viewpoints.
A Stitch in Time (Original story) Little bear doesn't listen to his mother and goes off chasing a bee and learns the valuable lesson of 'a stitch in time saves nine.'
