This week, the last in our little bear’s Reception year at ‘big’ school, I’m not penning a poem (like I did last week). Instead, I’m handing the spotlight over to our little bear (aged 5) and her imagination station!
Hubby and I are passionate about reading to our little bear. She has a desk that will grow with her as she goes through the various stages of development in literacy at school. When I was blogging as Mummy Bear, I wrote this poem about changing her cot into a desk. And she uses this desk daily. At this stage of her life, she uses it for colouring, writing, sticking, crafting ~ being creative. As she goes through school, I’m sure it will be used for more ‘focussed’ activities…
As the end of Reception approached, we began to sit at it (me/hubby teetering on the edge of a little chair!) while doing her homework. This meant that it needed a good tidy up but it has also put her in the homework mindset.
Her desk gives her ready access to all things creative, ready access to all things that fuel a 5 year old’s imagination and this is what she came up with.
As I was pottering around, she asked me how to spell the odd word. But really, the majority of this is her own work. And that’s what makes me oh-so-very-proud 🙂
