The best thing about Sam starting school last year was his learning to read and write. One of the best things about Sam learning to read and write is that Elise is eager to try to keep up with her big brother. Halfway through the year we started finding notes left by our bed.
Elise would copy by leaving notes too, but she chose to keep the notes short. And she insisted on using some notecards that she found in my desk.
Her notes usually include a picture of her or her and someone else and then her signature.
This is one of her early signatures that I really love.
I love how she has lots of lines in her E's and that the first E and the last E face eachother.
It just makes sense.
Throughout the year, Sam's writing improved and his pictures included more details.
Elise started to experiment with color.
Elise's handwriting is starting to improve...as it should, but I will always love her early style. This note is getting much more advanced including some lower case. I think Sam helped her with her spelling on this note about her BFF Ella. That...or she knows more than she is letting on at pre-school.
