Most of Froggy's writing is copy work and dictation. Today we tried creative writing for the first time. Froggy loved that I asked her to do it. Her story reflects this. She wrote "Once upon a time, there was a young girl who hated to do school. But then her Ima found a way to it so she liked it. And they lived happily ever after. The End" She asked how to spell some words (upon, young) which I told her, corrected other errors herself (found) and left some silly errors (school, hapily). She said she was adding the extra capitals in "Once Upon A Time for effect even though she knew they should not be there.
I hope to do this every week if we can do our required copy work early enough. I think it is good for her and we both loved it.
