Read through the fireworks and choose about five that you think might interest your child. Allow him or her to select 1-3 of them.

  • Write a story about an anthropomorphic animal.

  • Do some animal classification activities:




  • Get a large frame or hula hoop. Take it outside and set it on the ground. Write down everything you can observe within the frame or hoop. What plants are there? Anything from the animal kingdom? What is in the dirt? What man-made items do you see? Write down descriptions of each thing you see in the frame or hoop. You may need to look up more information about some of these things.

  • In the animal world, when creatures are faced with things that they don't like, their instincts tell them they can fight or run away. As humans, we have more options. Write about what you can do in each of these situations:

  • Situations that Make Me Angry

  • Situations that Make Me Frustrated

  • Situations that Make Me Worry

  • Situations that Make Me Happy

  • Situations that Take a Lot of Time
