Sunday, Isabella wasn't feeling great. Her cough was still wearing her out so I let her come to our Sunday School class with us instead of hers. I gave her some paper and crayons and she was perfectly content for the next hour.
During this time she colored a picture of a house, started doing some math problems (2+2=4; 5+5=10, etc.), and wrote a story. I LOVE reading the stories my girls have written when they were first learning to spell. They are adorable! Here's a picture of her story. She first titled the story "the gumee bear" but at the end, she realized she had written about a chicken and a pig, so she had to change the title. Below is her story as she spelled it.
"The chicin and the pig" "The chicken and the pig"
Oun day a chicin and a pig One day a chicken and a pig
wer going to school were going to school.
the chicin was wocing The chicken was walking
bawrs and win he backwards and when he
turnd arouwnd he bumt turned around he bumped
into the wol he noct himself the into the wall. He knocked himself. The
pig cam and smac pig came and smacked
t his fas and that is haw he wock up his face and that is how he woke up.
dee end. The end.
So stinkin' funny! I love how the pig woke up the chicken.
Now, she can clearly spell the word "the." And she's heard a million stories in her lifetime end with "the end." But apparently she's alway's thought it was "dee end." But seriously, that's a lot of sentences (even though there's only one period in the entire story) for a kindergartener to write. It's just so fun to watch them learn!
