We All Went on a Safari!

Our new words are safari, ancient, dew, and ostrich. The words are from the book We All Went on a Safari!  Watch the video below if you would like to hear the story together. Listen for the words and point them out to your child.

Help your child learn the words. Explain their meaning and help your child use the words in their own conversation.



Safari is a journey or expedition, for hunting, exploration, or investigation, especially in eastern Africa. When you go on a safari, you might see giraffes, ostriches, or lions.

Ask your child if he or she would like to go on a safari, and why. 

Ancient pyramids

Ancient means very old or from a long time ago. The pyramids are ancient structures in Egypt.

Ask your child to tell you about something ancient. 

Dew on grass

Dew is drops of water that form outside at night on grass

Ask your child if he or she has ever gotten wet from dew. 


An ostrich is a very large African bird that runs very fast but cannot fly.
