Looks who is learning to write...
I had been working on getting Eloise to write "EL" over the last week or so. The other day we were practicing other things in her dry-erase book and I asked if she could write her name. So she did "E- L" and as I was telling her she did a good job... she started writing "O I S E" (but her "S" left much to be desired). I think my jaw dropped to the floor. I was stunned. We had never worked with her beyond the E and the L! I asked her who showed her how to write her name and she said, "Just me" (meaning herself). Wow. So then she and I sat and practiced some "S's" and this is what she wrote all on her own:
I had to take a picture, of course!
It is so fascinating to me to watch Eloise develop and learn and grow! (You should hear some of the crazy things she says--always gives us a good chuckle!!). We are so proud of her, especially for having just turned 3 only a couple of weeks ago! We hope to home school when the time comes... but it seems like it's already begun! :)
