The World of Learning...

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! :)


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
