At Cami’s new school she doesn’t really have homework. The most that she’s been sent home with is “research” on her family tree (names of grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.). Sometimes she picks out a fun book at school and we read it, which really lifts the pressure off and allows for free play post school.
In the spring of this last year, when Cami started writing and reading she also started journaling. Unfortunately, She misplaced her journal in June and stopped taking the time to think about her day and write something. I encouraged her several times to journal, but she was so specific that she needed *that* journal.
So I decided to enter a new dimension to her journaling… the art behind the words. I bought her a watercolor color notebook at the art shop and every couple days suggest that she paint in it or write something in it.
