Arctic Adventures – Lesson 20

“I can write a story.”

Objective: To use inventive writing to write a story. (W.K.1)

Materials: journal, pencil, crayons

Procedures: Read a non-fiction book about polar bears with your child and discuss polar bear facts. For a writing prompt, ask your child to write a scientific fact about a polar bear and its habitat. Encourage your child to use spaces between words, punctuation at the end of the sentence and to use letter-sounds that he hears in words. Then he will illustrate his story. Keep the journal in a safe place for his next story.

Conclusion: Have your child read his story to you again. Talk about his cool illustrations and how you enjoyed learning about polar bears.
