To Do Today

Laurence woke up this morning and the first thing he said was, "I better make a list of things to do." (Gee, I wonder where he gets that?) So, he got a piece of paper, a pen, and worked for about an hour on this, his T0-Do List:

Get your pj's off
Put your clothes on
Eat brecfest
Go out to play
Meat gest in afternoon
Read with gest
Eat dinr
Go get your pj's on
Brush your teeth
Go get in bed

I wish you could see it in his writing. I tried to take a picture to post, but it didn't come out quite right. He put his list in his pocket and has been looking at it from time to time today, feeling pretty good as he's able to check things off. Currently he's waiting for "gest" (guest) to arrive, and writing a book in the meantime. I know, I know, there's no mention above about writing a book, but he said he might as well write one, now that he's finished writing a whole day's list.


  1. Holy sh*t, Jan. That kid!

    Are you actually expecting a gest? Or is he just being hopeful?

  2. Yes, our "gest" should be here momentarily. His book is coming along quite well, by the way!

  3. That's awesome, Jan! He is WAY ahead. He's got blends, digraphs and double vowels. Did he seriously put an apostrophe in pj's too? Wow! He's learning a lot about writing through his reading. Something else that is very good is that not only is the spelling excellent, but the "to do" list is in sequential order and makes sense. For story telling purposes in writing, that is also a very important skill. I would die for a class of "Laurences". Keep up the good work.

  4. OMG! He is just amazing. I love his to do list, and am impressed that he is getting things done on it...there are adults who can even do that much.
