F writing

Can you doubt this little one’s devotion to learning? She seems more of a writer than many school age children I know (see below). Perhaps that’s because she is writing to Grandpa and she is highly motivated to tell her news about a trip to the park. And she’s not yet two!

So often writing comes before reading for a child inspired by a language rich environment surrounded by books and stories. For many others both reading and writing are a chore to be left behind as soon as school is out.
