PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Play a GROUP GAME, make a CRAFT, and write YOUR OWN STORYBOOK to send home!

The Elephant is having a Birthday Party, and your kids are bringing the presents! Have fun with this STORY STARTER!

What will the Elephant DO with all those funny (and very unusual!) presents?

Make labeled PARTY BAG CRAFTS with your kids, and then use them during game play. A Template is provided for the label.

Get out some shakers for 'whole-body' learning with an easy SONG (song notes provided), and learn a RHYME with a great 'steady beat' rhythm pattern.

(Includes directions for a free phone app for 'picking out' the song tune with their labeled keyboard. No musical skills required! Alternately, it works fine to simply chant this as a Rhyme.)

Then it's WRITE-A-STORY time! You can use the included Elephant Poster to introduce your story-writing activity.

A Template for recording each child's contribution is provided, along with Templates for Story Illustrations. These get stapled together at the end of the activity, to make a BOOK for each kid to take home!

Send your TAKE-HOME STORY home at the end of the day for a great family bedtime reading opportunity! Everybody knows how silly those Animal Birthday Parties can be!
