Yesterday Cecilia found some file folders, plopped down in the playroom with a stack of paper and her markers and started writing.
“What are you doing, sweetie?” I asked her.
“I’m doing paperwork. When I do paperwork I feel like a grown up at the office,” she told me. “This is my office, Mommy.”
As a parent and former elementary school teacher, I am fascinated by my daughter’s reading and writing development. Her invented spelling is coming along quite nicely.
Those were my favorite samples from a stack of her completed paperwork. Cecilia was quite the prolific writer yesterday. Her overflowing file folders reveal that she had a very busy day at the office!
*I must give a shout out to her amazing Kindergarten teacher Sonia at the Santa Barbara Charter School for all she has been doing to help Cecilia develop her literacy skills. You rock, Sonia!
