Amelia has entered a new stage in her writing . She has started to sound out words and write them phonetically. I first noticed it when she was playing. She was trying to write the name Sarah. As I watched her (without her knowing) she said the word slowly and wrote the letters SRU.
Want to try a few more???
(Grandma, Sally, Butterfly)
At this stage she is exploring with sounds and writing them as she hears them. It is really fun to watch her explore this new found skill.
This picture does not really show her writing, but shows the detail she has started to put into her illustrations.
Thanks for letting me share!
