Seriously, I look forward to my kids bringing home their writing journals at the end of the school year almost more than I do Christmas. It is one of my favorite things in the world to sit and read their little thoughts and what they feel is important to write about. Sure, I laugh a lot at their cuteness and spelling goofs, and I love to see their progress throughout the year, but mostly I just gain an insight into their little personalities that makes me so happy.
Here are 9 excerpts (one for each month of school) from Chloe's Kindergarten writing journal. I've left all punctuation and spelling intact. I wish I had the time to scan these in for you, because each is accompanied by an elaborate drawing, as only Chloe can do. You'll just have to use your imagination.
