be kind and patient

When we homeschooled, I let my son sound out words to spell them instead of correcting him on every word. He loved writing stories and wrote so many 'books' that I have them stored in totes.
I have lots of his signs too.
They make me smile.

:) His books sound like genuine treasures. I notice that his spelling may not be traditional, but is completely understandable!

These take me way back, Debra! I especially like "strabarys", makes me smile. I saved all of those adorable phonetic signs and stories from our four "kids", now ages 30 to 52. Two of them are published novelists, and they all use their writing and language skills in their careers. I think the best way children can begin to learn language arts is phonetically, and something else that always pays off is to keep them reading non-stop! Thanks for sharing!

Ah Debra these stories are great treasures I am sure. In looking back I bet you still see the little boy of those years. I am sure he grew up to be kind and patient too. Hugs!
