Circus performers are entertaining and give us lots of exciting things to write about in our journals.

At the Circus -Lesson 8

 I can write about a tight rope walker.

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

Materials: journal, pencil, crayons

Procedures: Talk about the things that a tight rope walker needs for his performance. Ask your child to write about a tight rope walker. Encourage him to use spaces between words, punctuation at the end of the sentence and to use letter-sounds that he hears in words. Write the real words under his sentence. Then he will illustrate his story.

Conclusion: Have your child read his story to you again. Talk about his cool illustrations and how much you liked his story.
