Everyone loves the circus and your child is sure to enjoy writing about such an exciting event! 

At the Circus – Lesson 4

I can write about what I might see at a circus.

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

Materials: journal, pencil, crayons

Procedures: Talk about things related to a circus. Ask your child to write about something she might see if she went to a circus. Encourage her to use spaces between words, punctuation at the end of the sentence and to use letter-sounds that she hears in words. Write the real words under her sentence. Then she will illustrate her story.

Conclusion: Have your child read her story to you again. Talk about her fun illustrations and how you enjoyed reading her story. If possible, make plans to visit a circus as a family.
