When I got in from work yesterday, Beth started telling me about an idea she had had, to produce a magazine for her class. She already had 2 helpers, and was making fliers to give out, to get 2 more volunteers.
They had already decided on competitions, jokes, puzzles etc, so I discussed with her the idea of having news about her class and the school, and reporting back on events.. ideas she also liked. She sat and listed their plans, so they could talk to their teacher this morning.
After school today, she was pleased to report that they had chosen their 2 new volunteers, and that her teacher was very happy to help out. She’s already written out the first draft, ready to go over it with her friends tomorrow.
Considering that she’s only 9, and it was all her own idea, do we have a future editor in the making?! 🙂
