Chloe attends playgroup three times a week and most days will bring home several bits of paper that she has drawn or painted on. She’s a keen mark maker and often assigns meaning to these marks telling me she has drawn a picture of “Mummy” or something similar. Usually these drawings are pretty unrecognisable. Occasionally you can see she has been trying to “write” – the best example of this was when she had written the “alphabet” and you could see distinct squiggles in lines to represent letters.
Last week she brought home another drawing and at the top I saw this . . .
Can you see it?
I asked her what she had drawn, not making specific reference to anything on the page and she immediately pointed out “my name” – I was SO proud!
I don’t know if she had been asked to write it, if she had copied it or if it was entirely independent but either was I’m very impressed with my little girl’s achievement.
