My five year old is using the Write About Me book this year as a tool to express his thoughts on paper. He typically completes about 2 pages per week, but would like it if I gave him more to do. He also writes on his blog. See here for his recent entry. Below you will see pictures of his work in the Write About Me book. I wrote the interpretation of his writing below each picture. I do use a whole language method for writing at my son’s age. I typically don’t correct his grammar or spelling or punctuation. If he asks me how to spell a word I usually tell him to try and sound it out. Sometimes I can read what he writes, but I usually have him read it to me so I know for sure what he wrote.

Write about your picture. Because space and God.
