Since we are working on a winter theme, I wanted to make her some fun journals (as she calls them) to have to go along with our theme. One has blank pages and is for her to use as she wishes and the other one is for us to do some shared writing. Some of the pages have simple topics that M can do on her own such as "draw a snowman." Other pages have a topic that we will do together. M will answer the question out loud and I will act as her scribe. These are still simple topics such as "I like penguins because.."
I am hopeful that not only will this journal be a keepsake of her thoughts at three, but also establish a foundation that writing can be a fun experience.
