Can I just have a proud boast, ok, show off, about dd1?

Who has struggled with reading and spelling (now in year 2) but has been having some private tuition for a fwe months now.

I went into the classroom this morning and the class had done Winter poems. They were all up on the wall. dd1s was AMAZING! beautiful (if miniscule) handwriting, thoughtful and poetic descriptions, LONG (amazing as she usually never finishes ANYTHING in the time allowed), ok the spelling was still pretty suspect but the majority of it was good.

I am really really bowled over and proud of her.

Yay! Well done Enid's DD1 and well done Enid for boasting! We should all feel able to boast about our children.

thats lovely enid. well done dd1!!

i always burst with pride when seeing my boys work on the wall ( apart from the time ds1 had to draw a picture of his family, I was depicted as a large round thing, with everyone else little stick men!)

glad the tuition is paying off. It's awful to have your dc struggling at school.

enid, I'm always spellbound by the imaginative stuff they do at school. well done to your dd1.

on a winter note, I saw someone reading Tove Jansson's The Winter Book as I was on my way to work and I've just ordered it online..

That's great. Lovely when you can feel proud of them.

Enid, that is really, really good to hear. I remember a lot of your threads where you have worried about dd1 and am so pleased she has come on so well!

Well done to Enid's girl. My DD has half an hour a week of private tuition, and it really makes a difference. My DS1 has weeny weeny writng too! It makes me laugh, bless him. I think he concentrates so hard on it being neat, that it ends up really titchy!

Well done Enid's dd2! I reckon in Yr2 they're allowed a bit of suspect spelling now and again.

The poetry thing - I'm always amazed by the imagination children use in their poetry at school at this stage. Poetry seems to grab their attention at this stage but where does it all go wrong so they never write verse again once they're teenagers?
