Extending this activity

  • -Develop a collection of personal experience stories to read and reread together. These stories will have a simple sentence structure that repeats and will use the words the child suggests.

    -Read "I Spy With My Little Eye" by Edward Gibbs and practice identifying the animals according to their attributes.

Adjust for an older child

Read along with the child, stopping at certain words that he or she knows to allow the child to read the word on his or her own. After reading, bring attention to the words that the child read on his or her own. Count the number of words that they read in the story.

Adjust for a younger child

Enjoy reading the story with the younger child, reminding him or her of the previous day’s experience in writing it. For the younger child, the goal is that he or she finds enjoyment in talking about the experience, watching the adult write the story, and then reading it back together.
