This is a purely selfish post. I assume most people will not be as amused by any of this as I am. If this were back in the day when people kept photo albums, I would put these pictures there and that would be it. Now, I get to put it on my blog for posterity sake.
OK, so here goes. Below are 3 pictures that I took of school work that came home in Jays school bag. Each of the 3 sheets shows his answers – Which while they are correct and I am so proud of how well he is doing in school – Was not what caught my eye. My boy illustrated his work. I will go on a limb and say he was probably the only kid who did that so I hope it brought some cheer to his teachers day when she checked it.
In the above picture, the drawings that I am particularly fond of are the “wonder” and the “cricket”. I also got a kick out of him drawing a Christmas tree for “marry”. I am guessing that he thought the word was “merry”. I do kind of wish that he had drawn something for marry. I’m interested to know what his idea of marriage is. What the picture doesn’t show is that he had erased the E in sundae and written in a Y. Most likely because he didn’t know what a sundae was and thought there had been an error. The E was put back in it’s rightful place and he drew an ice-cream cone. So funny!
In the above picture, I like the untied shoe lace but mostly, I am in love with the attention to detail. Notably, the light on the dentists head and the closed eyes as the person uses the napkin.
In the above picture, he not only drew pictures for each part of the compound word, but then also one for the compound word itself. I love how he drew “soft”, and I am sort of relieved that he didn’t know how to draw “birth”. There’s time to get to that. The birthday hat took me more time to figure out than it should have. My absolute favourite though, is the sunburned person. You can see the dark colour and the heat radiating off them. It’s fabulous!
