Francis and the First Nativity Scene Story Prop Cards
It was Christmas 1223, when St. Francis of Assisi told his friends: "I want to celebrate Christmas in the woods. We will put up a manger with straw, and light a fire that makes the night light and warm. Oxen and donkeys and all people from the area should be there ..." That night, when the first nativity scene was invented, people hummed a lullaby to God. - A story that touches children, adults and seniors alike. The Kamishibai Story Props, along with the stage, take one of the most well-known stories, and use its familiar images to encourage children to re-tell the story, develop their vocabulary, confidence, and social skills.
All our story props come in reusable grip seal bags for easy storage and retrieval.

Audio-enable your story prop cards with our recordable labels and talking pens. Use the labels to record as you go through each card, and capture the pupils' comments and your own narration of events. The talking pens will save your recordings so you can listen to them later, and show other teachers or parents what you've been up to!

For more inspiration and a dual language version of this story with text, have a look at our audio-enabled books.

*This product has an information card which is in German, provided by early education publishers Don Bosco. The images themselves are without text and can be used for any audience, speaking any language.
