Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers
Natalie's teacher called me over to chat at pick-up today. At first, I felt nervous...thinking, uh-oh, what did she do? My nerves calmed as we chatted and she shared that what she wanted to show me was this picture:
She talked about how Natalie is blossoming into a writer who's using invented spelling to send a message with her writing. Here, she drew a picture of the fam and wrote, "ILVYU"-I love you.
I immediately asked if she could send me this picture as I wanted to save it for Nat. She's so proud of her work! I thanked her teacher for sharing it. We continued to chat about how rewarding teaching is-I'm glad we had this moment and I'm glad we captured this work.
She's becoming a writer...
