I have mentioned before about creating a learning journal. All too quickly time passes, and sometimes we then forget the little things, the moments, the joys, but by recording things – keeping it fun, keeping it personal, all too quickly you can look back and see where your child started….and how far they have come.
Here is a nice start to the journal, perhaps having it as a front cover and when you have a moment, grab those little hands, paint them, and get them down on paper. Perhaps have this poem along side?
I miss you when we’re not together,
I’m growing up so fast,
See how big I’ve gotten
Since you saw me last?
As I grow, I’ll change a lot,
The years will fly right by.
You’ll wonder how I grew so quick –
When and where and why?
So save this print in a safe place,
And take it out each year,
The memories will come back of me,
When I was small and dear.
