N enjoys school but the one thing he’s not keen on is writing. So I was happy to see him getting excited about being close to completing his reward chart writing row – he only needed 6 stickers. So one evening he wrote all 4 of his birthday thank you letters. Then not satisfied that he still had 2 stickers to get, he decided to write about dinosaurs.
Three sentences later, I had a piece of paper with information about diplodocus’ stomping their feet, T Rex’s chasing other dinosaurs and hapatosaurs (he insists they’re a real dinosaur) that go swimming in the sea. Then it was time to share the sounds that the animals make on the farm. The cutest was Fern (the dog) goes ‘roof roof’. Sweet.
Writing practice complete and 6 stickers gained in one evening. N was one happy little boy and mummy was very impressed with some neat writing and independent thinking about what he wanted to write.
