So what do you think the above word is?
Well, to me, it is one of the sweetest words I could have read, as you see, it was written by Emma Sage on a paper from school and she wrote it all on her own in a sentence.
The paper went like this: Thanksgiving is a time for being thankful. Draw a picture of someone or something that you are thankful for. Write a sentence telling why you are thankful for that person, pet, or thing.
Well, I was given this paper last night at my Parent/Teacher conference, and Emma Sage's teachers were so proud of this paper, as it was a drawing of me [thank you Emma Sage for making me very skinny] and written on her own following the classroom prompt, was
"I am thankful for my MOM bekas she is bwtifl"
Emma Sage is beginning to love to write. She still gets fatigued after a while and multiple sentences are still a struggle for her....but single sentences and using a whole word process, she is writing on her own.....sounding out words and writing them!
I am just so excited to see this, as this is truly the beginning of her being able to independently express herself. She is good at prompting and copying text, but this is independent writing......
So, it was very funny for me to see, a paper she decided to write on her own at home for her brother Otto. They were playing and on his encouragement, she got a little out of hand and hit him. She felt bad, although when he got this paper from her, he was actually the one who apologized to her, as he knew it was an accident.
She felt bad that she had hurt her brother that she wrote.....
"I am sorre"
and as Thanksgiving approaches, I am so very thankful for all the blessings in my life....and I'm overjoyed with Thanks on this new development in Emma Sage's writing.
