Kindergarten Writing

Last night, I was finishing my fifteen hours of entering report card grades that I stumbled upon this darling journal entry. I had forgotten about this little gem. It was drawn on September 24th after a week of learning about "Symbols of our Country". At this stage of writing in kindergarten, students generally are making simple drawings of their family and labeling them. They might be writing some "I see _____." sentences, but nothing of this caliber.

This child, I'll call him Dylan, asked me to sound out the words for him. For example: I'll say okay, the word draw is Da, rrrrr, aaahhh. You get my point. I don't spell the words for the students.

Is it not the cutest thing? I think it's my favorite writing sample in my four years of teaching kindergarten.

And is it possible to look at this and not smile?? So precious! Lady Liberty is standing proud, Dylan!

That's great for that age! I think he'll end up in the gifted and talented group.
