Digging Up Dinosaurs – Lesson 36 – Writing Prompt for Book 6, The Pit

Today is our last writing prompt for Digging Up Dinosaurs. If you look back to the beginning of your child’s journal, you will see much his or her writing has improved. By now your child should not be using squiggly lines for words, but rather, writing the letters to represent sounds. This writing prompt is a number sentence about fossils.


Digging Up Dinosaurs – Lesson 36

“I can write about fossils.”

Objective: To use inventive writing to write a story. (W.K.2)

Materials: journal, pencil, crayons

Procedures: Take out your child’s journal and a pencil. Talk about paleontologists and how the Dan and Nan found fossils. For a writing prompt, ask your child to write a number sentence about how many fossils he found. 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. Write the real words under his sentence. Then he will illustrate his story drawing the correct number of fossils

Conclusion: Have your child read his story to you again. Talk about the awesome illustrations and how you liked counting his fossils.
