Piper has been continuing to learn to read and write in First Grade. I came home from the gym one day and found labels all throughout our house. Piper had gone around and labeled different things in our house. She didn't spell everything right, but it was interesting to see how she ended up spelling things as she sounded them out. I took pictures of all the labels hung in their spots.
She did spell couch right. I think Jeremy said she had asked how to spell it.
I thought this one was interesting and very creative. It isn't actually a drawer, it is on a set of school lockers that we have in our house. But I guess to Piper, they were drawers.
Fluffy, Piper's parakeet.
Garage. You never would have guessed that one, huh? If it weren't hung on the garage door, I don't know that I would have known what it was either.
This one was my favorite! If it weren't hung on the back sliding glass door, I would have no clue what Piper was trying to spell. It says "outside". As you sound out the word, that is exactly how it sounds. She spelled it, how we pronounce it. Smart girl!
The closet in our hallway got two "closet" signs. I am not sure why she gave the door two signs. Maybe because it is such a big closet?
This was the sign on the bedroom that belongs to Finn and Seven. They share a room. If you look at this sign, it is interesting because "Finn" is written in pink. Why would she write Finn's name in pink? She knows he is a boy. Look more closely...it looks like the "F" started out as a "P". I think she was going to write her name, and then decided to change it to his name.
And of course, Piper's bedroom door gets a fancy sign. You can tell that she did not write her name. This was a label from something that was given to her from someone and she decided to make it the sign for her room.
This one may seem odd to you if you have never been in our house. This is the sign that was on Rilian's bedroom door. Why are my name and Jeremy's name also on the sign? We have to walk through Rilian's room to get to our bedroom. Rilian's bedroom is what was originally the master bedroom. But someone decided to add another bedroom on the other side of the master bedroom, which is our bedroom. It is a nice, huge bedroom!
Piper had put this sign on the t.v. I told her how easy it was to spell it the correct way, so she crossed her spelling of the word out and put the correct spelling.
For those of you who have children younger than First Grade, this is some of the fun stuff you get to look forward to. If your children are older than First Grade, then maybe this post has brought back some wonderful memories of your own children.
