After talking with Cavett's teacher about his writing skills and conveying the problem to Nana, Nana helped us come up with a solution. We are now using graphic organizers to help with getting his thoughts down on paper. He and Nana did a fairly in-depth practice set about our trip to San Diego. Tonight while waiting for the 4:00 service to start, we worked on a very short practice-6 sentences about Christmas.
While he came up with the thoughts, I did promt a little and after the main points were determined he was tired of writing it down himself (the opening and closing) and had we had the time or energy, he could have expanded on each sentence. We talked about them, but he was done. I mean, it is Christmas Eve after all. But, without further ado, if you haven't figured it out yet, here it is from a 7 year old perspective.
"Christmas Is" by Cavett Hill (age-almost 7)
Do you know what Christmas is about? Christmas is not about toys. It is not about Saint Nick. Christmas is about Jesus being born. It is about Jesus being the best present of all. I hope you have a wonderful "Christ"mas.
May each of you have a very special wonderful "Christ"mas and remember the true reason we celebrate.
