My First Story...by PiperOnce upon a time the girls sat in the house on the beds and the girls jumped on the beds beds. Piper 5.
This morning Piper came to me and asked if she could write a story, I asked her if she wanted to draw a picture to go with the story and she came up with this little ditty. I gave her absolutely no help spelling but encouraged her to sound out the words. I was super surprised she spelled the word 'jumped' all by herself! I cannot wait for more picture books and stories! Does anyone know if they still sell the exercise books with the space for a drawing and ruled lines for words underneath?

WOW!! That is really good! I'm a kindergarten teacher and many of my kids come to kindergarten and can't even write that well. She even has the spacing down between words! She's a rockstar!! I know here in Texas, you can buy the paper with the story paper (lines at bottom and space at top) at places like Wal Mart and Target. I've had kids buy it at the beginning of the school year and bring it to school.

Love it! Isn't it great to see what they come up with all on their own?! I'm amazed every single day!

Check out Office Max in the school aisle. I think I saw the tablets with ruled paper there.

I love the story too!

Go to Lakeshore Learning. They sell that paper! You'll leave with much more than paper though! It's a fun place.

She's on a roll alright. That is one smart cookie you have there, but you already know that.
