Linnea knocked this collage together this morning to make me feel better. There are a few more, but she spent over 20 minutes on this one so it's the most impressive to my mind. I must work out how to solve the problem of her needing an adult to help find the end of the tape. Better tape?

From flashcards, we constructed the beginning of a story:
once there was an ancient
tower it fell down

And she copied it out with lines to indicate word gaps and zig-zags to indicate "continued on the next line":

once|there|wAs|AN ∫
ANCieNt|towEr|it|fEll ∫

And she called Emer over to look at every E; Emer was very excited by them, it's very important when someone writes an E or an e.

Cutting out

This is the hole that Emer cut. I drew around a toilet roll insert, then, without my guidance, she put the picture on top of a piece of playdough, stabbed a hole in it, and cut from the hole as close to the lines as she dared.
