My daughter hates writing. Every time it comes to the composition portion of her languages arts, our homeschooling session are anything but fun. She loves making up stories and being creative but she detests having to compose essays with proper sentence structure and phrase variation. Keep in mind, the girl is in 7th grade and the basics should come easy for her. After several hours of trying a gazillion ways to get her to write beyond the level of “I like bugs”, I found this doodle. Did I ever mention just how expressive she is with her stick figure sketches?
What a mischievous (and pretty funny) teen I have! I wanted to be irritated upon seeing this but it cracked me up so much inside I couldn’t help but like it. Still, let’s just say it was a good thing I found her ‘playful’ stick person doodle AFTER her assignment was done and MUCH later in the evening . . .
