Before this journal entry, research facts about seals with your child.
Arctic Adventures – Lesson 28
“I can write a story.”
Objective: To use inventive writing to write a story. (W.K.2)
Materials: journal, pencil, crayons
Procedures: Read a non-fiction book about seals with your child and discuss seal facts. For a writing prompt, ask your child to write a scientific fact about a seal 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 great illustrations and how you enjoyed learning about seals.
