This final journal entry for Jungle Safari will be about a hippo!


Jungle Safari – Lesson 23

“I can write about hippos.”

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

Materials: journal, pencil, crayons

Procedures: Talk about the places where the hippo took his nap. For a writing prompt, ask your child to write a story about his favorite item to sleep with. 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 correct words under his sentence. Then he will illustrate his story.

Conclusion: Have your child read his story to you again. Talk about his fun illustrations and how you loved reading his story.
