Today’s writing prompt will integrate a little science of how plants grow!


Down on the Farm – Lesson 30

I can write about plants.

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

Materials: journal, pencil, crayons

Procedures: Read the real story of Jack and the Beanstalk and compare the two stories. Then talk about things plants need in order to grow. Ask your child to write about the things that plants need. 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 pretty illustrations and how you learned about what plants need.
