Lucy LOVES her iPad! She’s been teaching herself all things vlogging this summer. She’s been working very hard and its actually very impressive what she’s come up with. BUT every now and then she (every one of us) has to put the devices down and do something else.
She’s been spending her time in the pool, playing basketball, hanging out with friends and teaching Winnie new tricks. I keep trying to get her to sit down and read a book (my other girls are bookworms) but she keeps fighting me on this. So I gave her the option to write instead. She got a new journal and a couple of times a week I’m going to give her a writing assignment. Yesterday I asked her to talk about her favorite summer memory. She sat for hours writing, she even took her journal in the car with us.
Some other writing ideas:
the thing I’m most worried about when school starts
the thing I’m most excited about when school starts
my favorite trip ever and what made it so great
my favorite restaurant ever and why
what makes a good teacher
describe yourself. Use lots of details
list all the things you’re thankful for
what is your favorite thing mom (or dad) makes for dinner
if you had one wish what would it be and why
what would you buy if you won the lottery
if you had to live in another country which one would you choose and why
I have a bunch more questions on my list but lets see if we can get through some of these first.
I’m still not giving up on having her finish a book or two this summer either 🙂
