We spoke about the types of events that might deserve an ouch story, and I modelled my own for them. We also practised acting out what we would do and say when we are hurt. By the time it came around to independent writing, all of my kidlets were super excited to write their story!
|I fell on the road. Ouch! I hurt my knee.|
|I was on my bike and I scraped my body.|
|I fell off my bike and I hurt my head.|
|I was going to the trampoline and I fell on a rock. Something big came on my foot and it was a big pain and it really hurt my foot.|
Now I know this isn't my original idea, but there's so many pins to many different sources that I couldn't figure out who thought of it first. :)
I hope everyone's having a terrific week!
