Creative Writing Activity

Creative Writing Activity for "Chicken, Pig, Cow" Children's Book by Ruth Ohi from www.daniellesplace.com

 

Make up your own story using your craft stick barn, toy animals, and whatever you might have.

Note: If you don't have craft sticks, you can make a barn out of a cardboard box.

Encourage your children to make fences, silos, and other things they might see on a farm. Have your child reenact their own story and take pictures as he reenacts the story. If you have a pet, be sure to include your pet in the story.

Print out and glue the pictures to book pages, and then help your child write a story that goes along with the pictures.
