Intro to Writing Stories

After doing some painting last week, I asked L and E (3 years old) if they wanted to write stories about their artwork. I tried not to provide too much guidance - I just wrote what they told me to write. Here's what they came up with...

This is E's story (she's really been interested in drawing faces lately):

I like that these stories are really their own words.  A lot of times we make up stories together and I help guide them with questions.  I think both techniques have value.  We'll definitely be doing more activities related to writing and illustrating our own stories in the future.
