Erika had seen this paper with lines on the bottom and an open area for a picture on the top, and she asked to use it yesterday to write a story. Unfortunately, we ran out of time when she'd written three words.

We got back to it today. I encouraged her to spell the words herself, but she asked me for confirmation that they were spelled correctly at the end of each word.

Frankly, I am astounded. This is the first sentence she's ever written. We've done no work on spelling, and very little work on handwriting. She only needed help with two of the words in the sentence -- "going," which she originally spelled "goeng," and "store," which she originally spelled "str." I did spell the names of some of the animals in the picture, like "guinea pig," for her.

And I think the picture is pretty cool, too.
