Sunday Selections #144: Homework Drawings

It's time for Sunday Selections!
Sunday Selections is a weekly meme hosted by River at Drifting Through Life. It's a way to showcase some of the photos we take, but don't get shown on our blogs. 

The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to River somewhere in your post
3. leave a comment on River's post and visit some of the others who have posted and commented: for example:
    Andrew at High Riser
    Gillie at Random Thoughts From Abroad

This week I'm posting photos of the illustrations my kids do on their homework books.  I don't know how long their teachers will let them do this, but I love it.

This one M did today, underneath some facts about kookaburras she had to research and write herself.

These ones are from March this year - A's illustrations on a couple of pages of her Greek school homework:

Long-tailed Potoroo research done by A today:

Each week the kids get "DIPL" (literacy) homework that includes two written sentences using spelling rules covered in the week.  A. always illustrates hers:

This was a story M had to write recently, which she was very proud of. (It had to use certain words, which are the ones in colour):

Have I mentioned I love, love, love kids' drawings?


  1. We have a folder of many of our niece's drawings. I make nice noises about them. But I thrill to see her writing ability develop, and her literacy skills. Of course as you know, there is still the aitch problem. You know how people often say about art, a kid could have done that. I think a kid did with the kookaburra drawing. It is brilliant.

  2. Love the creativity. Long may it continue - and M's story is really good too.

  3. Your kids drawings are excellent. I like M doing a "word challenge" story, just like our "Words for Wednesday".

    1. Ah yes! So it is, I hadn't thought of that :)

  4. Flipping fabulous Jackie! Adore the first one! What talented girls you have.

    Thought your pulp fiction was really clever, though had settled myself down with a cup of tea…didn't realise it was 25 words max, so all over before the first sip! Longer next time? :) x

    1. Thank you!
      Haha! yes, I'll try for a longer story next time :)
