Now your child will begin writing about the jungle in her journal. You can help your child find ideas to write about by reading some non-fiction jungle books to her.


Jungle Safari – Lesson 3

“I can write a story.”

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

Materials: journal, pencil, crayons

Procedures: Talk about the jungles and savannas of Africa. For a writing prompt, ask your child to write about something she might see in the jungle or on the savannas. Encourage your child to use spaces between words, punctuation at the end of the sentence and to use letter-sounds that she hears in words. Then she will illustrate her story. Keep the journal in a safe place for her next story.

Conclusion: Have your child read her story to you again. Talk about her awesome illustrations and how you loved reading her jungle story.
