I always love coming across stories about kids using notebooks:
My son commented that he needed more notebooks. I asked him why. Didn’t he have several notebooks that weren’t full? Yes, he said, but one was for thoughts on his school work, and the second was about the environment, and the third one was for our trips. He just started a new topic in the last one he owned, and he wanted to have a blank one in reserve, for the next topic that was bound to surface.
I went over and looked over his shoulder. Beautiful rows of assured, second-grade English-style cursive lined the pages. He was writing about Antarctica. Geography, science, penguins. Whatever interested him.
Bravo! Sounds like the start of a life-long habit…
