I thought the story was pretty clever so I wrote it down as she said it. She used words like "bobbed" and "rustling" and I couldn't help but be proud.
I wanted to make this story into a book, but the last time I tried this it didn't go too well. I think Hadley got overwhelmed with all the writing and lost interest. So instead of having her rewrite her own words, I typed up the sentences twice, taped one copy on a baggy, then cut up parts of the second copy for Hadley to put together.
She put her words in order, then glued them onto pages I made for her.
Then she illustrated her story.
Here's the story: The Spring Who Save the Baby Squirrel that was Stuck in the Mug of Hot Coffee
One day I heard an annoying rustling sound. It was a squirrel that was stuck in a mug of hot coffee.
So I bobbed along the path to save the baby squirrel.
The baby squirrel was by a cat-o. A cat-o is the Spanish word for cap.*
After I saved the squirrel I bobbed along the path to tell my mommy and daddy all about my adventure.
(*Hadley's likes to make up a words and say "That's Spanish for.....")
