I feel like I’ve neglected this space but today was a great day for one of my students. The transformation of a student’s understanding and the thrill that was experienced by the child is so rewarding for teacher and student. The expression on the child’s face said it all for me. That realization that he is a writer and what he writes can be read by others. I’ll keep posting about this child’s journey throughout his first year of formal education in Australia (Prep – 5 & 6 Year Olds). All posts referencing this child’s journey will be called, ‘His Journey’.
June 7th I went to soccer. This child is going to ‘zoom’. All I can say is we need to be patient and positive with young writers. It’s all about readiness, nurture and trusting the journey.

This was one of those learning leaps that we see when a student ‘connects the dots’. Teachers can start worrying and making predictions about young learners too early and children pick this up. This student knows he’s making progress and is such a keen writer and reader. Once again thanks for commenting, I really appreciate it.
That’s great – well done!
