Silly Stories!

Making a book of silly stories!

Construction paper
Crayons/Markers/Pensils etc.
Your imagination!

Tell your children that today you guys will make a fiction book (a great time to explain the difference between fiction and non-fiction books.) Let them know that when writing a fiction story anything is possible!

Next come up with some silly sentences and give the kids examples like; The ant ate the couch! The butterfly took the dog out for a walk..

Depending on the child's age, you or the child can write down each silly sentence on a sheet of construction paper then have the kids illustrate the sentence! You can make as many sentences as you like! When you are done simply staple the pages together and read your book!

Don't forget to make a cover page! We called ours Silly Stories!

Starfall has a great page that has both fiction and non fiction stories! Click on the link below to access that page.
