A Shell from Florida


This is Max's shell that Mimi brought back for him from Florida a couple of weeks ago. I have started having Max write a journal page every day. I gave him my date stamp (but I am still going to use it) to stamp each day's date on his page. I am trying to encourage him to do more writing and write on his own by listening to the sounds of the letters in the words and recording what he hears. He usually just writes a sentence or a phrase. Sometimes I write the actual spelling of the word he wrote underneath his writing. Writing frustrates him, but I think he is starting to see that it can be a lot of fun to keep a journal...especially when we do it together.
This is my page. A pen drawing colored with crayons.


Oh...and our scanner is ruined due to a leak in our roof...so you will have to endure photos of my drawings until we replace it.

What a great idea to do with Max! I'm sorry about your scanner. What a bummer! Love, MOM

Julie,
I love seeing your drawings...you are so talented, I can fully understand the time issue and life responsibilites as I teach fulltime as well and have kids of my own. Savannah's poem was really good on your mom's website. Have a great day,
Ruth Jackson
