I'M MOVING OVER, THERE'S A NEW WRITER IN THE FAMILY

The wonder that is Jenn, who taught Rojo how to ride a bike this summer, has now taught him how to write a paragraph. She showed him a picture of a dog, and instructed him not to push "enter," as they are working on having all the words form a whole, not a list, not to use numbers, for the same reason, and to not tell the dog what to do, but tell the reader what the dog IS doing.

Here's what my boy wrote:

the dogs name is Sylvester. The dog is watching T.V.. The dog is panting a pumpkin for hollwen. The dog is making clay by him self . Sylvester also likes food like bananas and corn and apples and grapes . he’s looking at is nose because he fell’s like it . he’s walking by him self. Then what he will do is go out side and water the plants and play basketball. He looks funny I don’t know why . he likes to swing on the swings and swim to. Then he is going to go back inside and watch some more T.V..

Right now I "fell's like" I could cry. With gratitude.

Bananas, corn and apples? Projection or a big fat lie? As if we really care! That's why we have doggy bags. Well done indeed.
Cheers

I'm with Deb. I'd like to read Rojo's blog (even though I've been absent from blogland for a long time). I'd come out of hiding to read anything Rojo writes!
