We decided to let our four oldest girls do this together. They were given their first Story Starter about a week before Valentine's Day. Then we all got together on Valentine's Day for the readings. I think the moms enjoyed hearing the stories more than the girls! They were all so good and so incredibly different.
Today we met at the park for a picnic lunch and the second reading. Once again the girls surprised us with their vivid imaginations and creative writing. Even my reluctant writer is beginning to get excited about writing these stories. I plan on keeping all of the stories and compiling a little book when they're finished. It's nice when learning can be so much fun-and even nicer when you can share it with friends.
