We are embarking on something new over spring break. I really want Ebi-kun to write more in English as he doesn't get as much practice as he does in Japanese. So I asked him if he'd like to try doing "morning papers".
For those who don't know, morning papers is a practice often used by writers or creatives to get the rubbish out of your head and the creative juices flowing. You set a timer for 30 minutes and just write. The topic isn't important, it is more about the process.
I don't know if this is something he will stick at or just something he will try out for a while but so far he is enjoying it and I'm happy that he is getting writing practice!
I don't correct his work but I do take note of any common mistakes and stick mini post it notes on them so he can figure out what is wrong and how to correct it. We will watch and see where this takes us...
