We read “Ayobami and the names of the animals”, a story about a girl who is starting school, but gets lost in her way there on her very first day. She ends up in the jungle, where she meets lots of different animals. Ayobami asks the animals for help getting to school, and promises them she’ll learn how to write each and every one of their names in return, so they can see how they look written.
The animals showed her the way to the school, so we helped Ayobami write the names of all the animals she met:
SNAKE, HIPPOPOTAMUS, SPIDER, LEOPARD, MOSQUITO, CROCODILE.
