Gotta love the cultural component of Montessori. A. recently wrote his very first sentence. They pick a picture out of a pile of magazine clippings and write a sentence about what's going on in the picture.

A. picked this picture:

And here's his sentence, "The men are wting to ply bingo":

Now is that a first sentence or is that a first sentence? Screw Dick and Jane. Let's talk about loiterers.

This is so funny that, after composing myself from a giggling fit, I gathered the family around my computer for a good laugh.

Also, A.'s handwriting and spelling are - and I use this word very sparingly - superb.

Totally ROFL at that one, Colleen!

Kinda reminds me of the first nursery rhyme my Grandmother (not my mother, my Grandmother) taught Daisy. Not Mary Had A Little Lamb or Twinkle Twinkle Little was this little ditty:

"There was a little birdy sittin' on a pole, wiggle-waggle went his tail and Pfffffttttt went his hole."
Only my Nana, rest her soul.

OK - love the sentence, too.

But what scares me is what the guy second from the left is wearing! (or not wearing?) He could have come up with something totally different for that first sentence, and wouldn't that have been interesting!!

btw - LK's first sentence - The Day Mr. Fish Got Dead. (she had help with the spelling because it was going on the bulletin board) but all the kids wrote about it and drew a picture of the dead fish. Yep - that's our non-Montessori preschool!
