Just cleaning out some files yesterday when I came across these little stories my youngest composed in his first year at prep school, when he was learning to read and write. There are hundreds of them! .... all these little files on every topic imaginable. He would sit at the computer for hours, slowly typing out each little story... one finger at a time (we have TV and computer game bans during the school week so with no set homework, at 5 years of age, he had to do something!... this was his 'homework'!). He never asked us for help, never asked us how to spell anything.... he is so fiercely independent.... ..and even now, he knows so much more than both his parent's Science Degrees put together. We can't tell/advise/correct him on anything! You'll be pleased to know that he can spell 'medical surgery' now that he is in Grade 2!
I have selected a few of my favourites, just cut and pasted as they are. Keep in mind this was all one finger stuff. Enjoy!
