Story Time:
“The First Stories,” page 46 from "How To Guide"

Spin-a-Tale, page 46 from "How To Guide"
  • Tessa retold the story of how Robin, the red robin, became red in her own words.
  • Shared information with Tessa about folk and pourquoi tales from this section of the “How To Guide.”
  • Tessa created her own pourquoi tale by completing the “How the Zebra Got Its Stripes” drawing prompt.

Tessa's completed “How the Zebra Got Its Stripes” story prompt. First, she drew how the zebra looked before it got its stripes. Then, she drew how the zebra got its stripes...a striped snake slithered underneath the zebra's hooves. The snake's stripes transferred onto the zebra. The zebra graphic shows how the zebra looks today.

Fly, Fly Away, page 47 from "How To Guide"
Tessa had a blast dancing with her streamers. I tied three three-foot-long pieces of grosgrain ribbon in their middles to two elastic pony tail holders. (Six pieces of ribbon in all.) Afterward, I sealed the edges with something akin to Fray Check. I created these dance streamers for each of our Journey girls. A simpler option would be to tape or glue strands of crepe paper to craft sticks or staple them to plastic straws. Even simpler...do what's listed the "How To Guide."

Tessa danced exuberantly during the Fly, Fly Away portion of the session.

Closing Ceremony:

Animal-Care Ideas, page 49 from "How To Guide"
  • Tessa drew a picture of a favorite item that she uses to care for herself on a pink bird cutout. She placed the drawing (pictured above with her pourquoi tale) in her previously crafted “All About Me” nest.
