I have started doing some extra hours in school, helping some children write. I have so far covered the circular type letters (c, a, d, g, o) and b, e and t. They are naturally going to get bored writing out 'dog' and 'goat' endlessly, so I need your help. Can you come up with any simple short sentences using lots of these letters? I'm sure you can manage something far more exciting than 'go get a dog', which I'm not keen on as the grammar is not right!
I have so far only worked a total of 2 hours with each child and already the improvement is huge. Scribbly, illegible writing has turned into neat, correctly formed letters. To see their faces when they can tell it's going well makes my job all the more worth while.
I love my job and am so lucky to have it. And I even get to teach some of them knitting too! (Starting a sentence with 'and' - who was complaining about bad grammar?)
