After a month mostly off from writing and drawing, e is back into it! She has even begun writing her own summaries. I ask her what scene she wishes to draw, and what story elements are necessary for a reader to understand the picture. She is proud of her new independent skill, as am I. :)
Anansi and his strange, moss-covered rock sitting on e's form.
Now we are working our way through Christopherus' trickster tales. e has decided she should read them herself, so each night while I am making dinner, she pulls out the binder and reads to me!
The trickster tales, combined with her ability to read them herself and write her own summaries, have met e exactly where she is at this moment in time.
The mirrored forms also catch her attention. It is harder than it looks to produce these!
She is still doing Teaching Textbooks four days a week, and squirrel number practice with me.
We are doing nature paintings this week, a few more trickster tales next week... A friend recommended Love and Roast Chicken. I can't wait to read it!
