An idea that a sister gave me was to start a news journal. This is a book with a piece of blank paper and a few lines underneath. I am in the process of making R’s news book journal. Every time we go out somewhere, I will ask her to draw a picture of her day and to tell me what she drew in her picture…which I will write down under her picture and maybe ask her to copy a few sentences. I will also use this book when I read her a new story. After reading the story, I will ask her to draw a picture of what the story was about and again ask her to tell me what she drew in her picture. A chance for copywork again.
I think this is a good way to test comprehension, copy work as well as stimulating her imagination.
