Harry, who is 5, finished his first year at his "big boy" school this week. His journal came home in the backpack and we had a chance to read it from cover-to-cover. It is amazing to see the progress from a few words to more complex sentences. Okay, my intent wasn't to brag. The students write in the journals everyday. They would copy a question written on the board or dictated and write a response in their journal. They would also create an illustration. The teacher would write comments. Hmm ... doesn't this sound like a blog minus the ability for anyone to leave a comment?
Here's a sampling of journal entries from throughout the year!
