Now my 7-year-old Ian, is writing poetry.
“Apples are red not blue
Or not either the colour of poo.”
Amazing how poo, fart and pee is such a big motivation and gets kids to read and write a lot! When Ian was about 5 and rejecting his reading assignments, I got him to enjoy reading by looking for words like “we-we” then building it up to “dad we-we” or “I we-we” 😜. From that motivation. He picked-up his reading assignments again and today he does his homework alone and is even on his way to becoming famous author and illustration one day 😉
