I have started a blog for Sweet Bear. She has been calling my blog her site. When I asked her if she wanted her very own blog she smiled big, big, big (as she would say) and said, “YES”!
She wrote her very first post with the help of Mama. You can read it on her blog if you want. It’s cute. She picked out her blog and the theme that I put together from Cute Colors.
One of the first big steps in language is to be able to communicate fully a thought or idea. She still has trouble forming sentences in English and French. I thought that by her telling me in sentences what to write on her blog which she LOVES it would help her to be stronger and more confident in forming sentences. Hopefully, this confidence will help her French as well. In the past she seems to be able to move along in both languages when she is confident. For about three months she has slowly been losing confidence. I want to change that.
When we write letters together for her big sister Sweet Bear learns new words and thinks it is fun to be able to type out what she is saying so that her sister can read it. Really, this is a way to build on her love of writing via Mama and communicate with her sister.
I think that over the next few years it may make a huge difference in her English skills. My dream is that by five she is typing away by herself with my help. You never know. Can you imagine having a blog telling your life in your own words from three years of age? What a treasure. I’ll try to see if Petite Clown is interested. If she is I will begin one for her as well.
UPDATE: Petite Clown has a blog too. She is very happy with it even if it the theme is bunnys and not clowns.
