I believe in encouraging young writers to do just that… WRITE!
My mama did that for me.
A few years ago, she showed me a poem I wrote for her when I was around 6. (or was it 7? Maybe 8? Mom, I know you’re reading this, so let me know the right age and I’ll fix it!) Anyway… I digress.
The point is, my mom took great joy in my early attempts at writing – and now I’m doing the same with my children.
And in order to carry on the family tradition, but in a more “techy” way, I am sharing a poem written by 9yo dd. It is one of those silly, funny, funky poems that make me laugh. And just like my mom, I take great joy in knowing my darling daughter wrote it. (I’m proud of you, sweetie!)
