Have you ever been anywhere or done anything that just didn’t feel right for you?
Make up a rhyme telling us about it, like….
I caught the ball and away I sped,
Then tripped and fell right on my head.
Maybe football’s not for me.
I think I’ll brew a cup of tea.
Now let’s get positive. Later in the story Lily writes:
Guess what! I know the place for me.
And a dance that fits us perfectly.
We’ll dance a line with drum and bell.
I’m coming home now. All is well.
Write a four-line rhyme about what fits you perfectly.
I like animals. They like me.
Chimps and dogs and…. even fleas.
When I grow up, brave and tall,
I want to be like Jane Goodall.
Here’s how you can design your own bookmark.
- Choose the size you want to make your bookmark. (If you already have a bookmark, you can use it as a model.)
- Use a ruler and draw your bookmark on a piece of paper. (Heavy paper works nicely for bookmarks.)
- Draw your Prancing, Dancing Lily design. You can choose a picture from my book, Prancing, Dancing Lily and draw a similar design or you can change the picture to your own style or you can think of a dance you’d like Lily to try and draw Lily dancing it.
- Color your design.
- Cut out your bookmark.
- Go find a book to read, so you can use your bookmark!
