Magic Marker Monday

Kayla has learned to make more letters of the alphabet - enough that she can start writing more words than just her name. It happened when I wasn't even looking! One of her homework assignments was writing some sight words that she found in a book; and using letters that she could form we came up with these 6 words.

Except for the "e" in "went" she made all the letters herself, without hand over hand guidance. Now a couple letters I did have to erase and have her try again, but she did, and the words are actually decipherable! (The first word looks like 'with' because of the lines, but its actually 'will' and I drew the line to separate the words 'can' and 'play').

I'm so excited to see how far she's come and can't wait to see what the next year brings in terms of handwriting!
