Agent 002 has started his own (offline) journal. While he learns basic skills, we are using the same book for creative writing and copywork -- he writes as he "hears" the words, then I show him how it would be written "in a book." He ends by copying what I wrote with all of the proper spelling, letter case and punctuation.
Thus far he loves it. He has been showing it to everyone. I hope that he will learn to enjoy writing and to see its power as a communication tool.
In this entry he is talking about the MonsterJam race we watched on Saturday.
The race was more fun than I could have ever anticipated, and he now has a favorite monster truck -- GRAVE DIGGER.
Grave Digger won the very scripted competition with flair that included car-stomping, wheelie popping excitement.
I have submitted this post as a "Works for Me Wednesday," because it really is a good way to get a new writer to practice and hone his skills.
