Safari Lessons - Journaling For Kids

This is a video I made up for my kids at school to introduce our 3 'Safari Animals' that will be taking turns going home with them for the weekends.  On the weekend they will journal about their adventures using their 5 senses to guide thier writing.  What did Dexter, Gerald & Rover see, hear, smell, touch and taste while they were on safari at your house?
Each animal has a journal with photos, an introduction page and a modelled writing passage of what thier writing could look like or sound like.
The kids were super excited to have Safari Animals to adventure with on the weekends!

  1. Such a lovely idea! I read/reviewed a great book recently, Duck for a Day, where the kids get to take home the class duck, provided they can fulfill its needs and wants. The publisher was Walker Books which means you might be able to find it.
