penmanship

penmanship

Simon’s been working on his. I love it. I hope you do too.

The first one is a goal he made in pre-school. He’s been good at buttoning his shirt for quite a while.

The second one is me being at the end of my rope this afternoon. Oddly enough, my plan worked. The boy who didn’t want to do anything and much to tired to move suddenly had enough energy to clean up the trio blocks and put the books away. Hooray. He can be helpful.

  1. I’m so glad he can “butt on [his] sihirt”. :)
    FYI I had to read it a few times before I got it, and then it was confirmed later in the post. Amazing!

  2. That’s very impressive. I should work on my penmanship, too – my mom always says my handwriting looks like chicken scratch, and the fact that I rarely use a pen and paper anymore isn’t helping my penmanship at all!

  3. Um…is it bad that when I read it the last word appeared as a swear word? Whoa! I had to really look at it several times because I knew he wouldn’t be capable of such words at this age (and hopefully never). Then when I got it sorted what it really was I was soooooooo impressed. I have to tell you, from a teacher’s point of view, he is doing AWESOME with his writing…and especially that he enjoys it too.

  4. I love this. What a great goal for him! And I love the intermixing of capital and lower case letters. :) I have a few students whose handwriting resembles Simons. Very impressive!
