Today your child will write her own funny story about that silly dog, Rags.

Pioneer Days – Lesson 14

I can write about Rags.

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

Materials: journal, pencil, crayons

Procedures: Talk about how Rags got into the supplies that the family had packed. Ask your child to write about something else that Rags may have gotten into. 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 cute illustrations and how you enjoyed her funny story about Rags.
