The other night at dinner-time M was telling us about her classroom and the exciting changes there this year. They have an all All New Library (in the classroom). :-)
She was very excited to tell us how incredible the selection is now; full of fairy tales, books of poetry, and fables. I asked her if she’d be interested in writing book reviews to post here and she was very enthusiastic.
I’ve set up a new category on the blog for Reviews, the plan is to make this the children’s space. M will be writing her own reviews, and using the computer for writing projects for the first time. I don’t plan to edit her posts beyond spelling errors. I hope she enjoys the excercise and that B sees this and will be interested in contributing as well. It’s always so difficult to figure out what’s worth pushing and where I should back off…
One issue this new feature brings up for me is my decision not to refer to the children by their names on this blog. Since she will be contributing, I kind of feel like my daughter’s writing deserves to have her name attached to it. I’m still undecided one this one, so for now, she’s still "M."
