This is Lucy’s first “official” narration. A big part of the homeschooling method we’re looking at is telling back stories the child has heard as well as the story of what happened on a trip, during the day, etc. We went to the zoo today with Craig’s mom today, and here’ is Lucy’s story (which required some prompting, but not too much). Here it is!
“I’ll tell you about the zoo. We went to the zoo. And then we saw the animals. And then we didn’t go see the lions. Abnd then what did we did? Samantha and us and you and mommy and me and Samantha and NaNa. I didn’t want to walk. Because my knee hurt because I got blood because I fell on th ground because I wnet on the mountain on the grass and then I got hurt. Then I got a yellow snowball.”
And here are the pictures…
