This is a disciplined activity done in a quiet room.
I teach them just two alphabets. The first is Johnston Foundational.
And the second is Chancery Cursive, an italicized font.
|The quality of the text was so good that I nearly forgave the lower case letters.|
I ask them to bring in a 30-50 word piece of their own choosing.
And here is where it gets interesting.
I love what they bring in. I love it.
It's where I get to see who they are. Their thoughts.
Usually they bring in song lyrics.
But often they use their own writing.
What they choose is astonishing.
I have done this for years, and it still blows me away every time.
It is one of the many things I know I will miss come September.
