Slice of Life Day 8:
I am participating in the twowritingteacher.org Slice of Life Challenge where I write each day for the month of March. This year my three-year old daughter and I are writing collaboratively. Feel free to follow along our month-long writing journey!
As an only child with hermit parents, Marlowe’s social skills aren’t quite as developed as they could be. We have been working hard to find opportunities for her to interact with other children more frequently and have been role modelling ways to introduce yourself to new people.
Today we had a playdate with a daycare friend at a gymnastic drop in centre and I was so proud of Marlowe because she introduced herself to a few kids there.
When we got home she was drawing pictures of her new friends. I wanted to nudge her into labelling her drawings and so we worked on this together.
What does a good friend do?
-say nice things
-Ask “What do you want to play?”
-Ask “What is your name?”
-Use nice words
I just love inventive spelling and approximations of letters. It makes me so happy to see at school and now at home too!
