Noah's Story

Noah's class writes a story about a different child each week. When all of the stories are written, they get put into a book and the child gets to keep the book.

The other day, Noah was told to write a story about himself. Let me share the story first, and then I will share with you my thoughts.

I am a Boy
I am 6
I have 2 cats
I lick (like) PB and J
I love you
and daddy.
I am funney.

There are a few things I love about this story. The first is that I think it is interesting that he sees himself as "funny". That gives me some insight into his self image. But my favorite thing about this story is that, even though he was supposed to be writing a "story", he seems to have written to me. I almost cried. Maybe I'm actually doing something right after all.

Have a great weekend.

I applaud you mama. He is a sweetheart, who maybe some of his anctics are because not only does he see himself as funny, but maybe also the class clown. Regardless, you are doing something special with that little boy!

Aww, that is so cute! And Noah is funny. And Kristi, of course you are doing something right-you are loving him! Have a great weekend:)

Very sweet! I love those first writing assignments in school. I feel like I learn something new about my child each time they bring some writing home.

That is really neat that he describes himself as funny. You're right-- it does show a lot about his self esteem / how he views himself. Its good

What a sweet story. Noah certainly is funny and clearly has a great sense of himself.
