Absolutely baffled - why is Aedan's nursery sending home a toy with a 'diary story' that clearly has to be filled in by the parents? They're supposed to be educating Aedan, not vetting *my* writing skills...

Hmm, I think it's because 3yo is supposed to be old enough to string a sentence together and tell what really exciting things they did for the day and you're supposed to write down his narration, like:

7 Dec 2011:
'I watched Spongebob all day'

I think it is meant that the toy will spent the day with Aedan, so that Aedan or the teacher can share during a group moment what adventures they had together. :)

You could always give him a crayon and let him "fill it out," lol!

An off-topic here - I sent you a message with regards to your address. Can you email me at manonb63@yahoo.com with it? The one I have is for Feltham.

Actually had to do something like this with my daughter when she was in 2nd grade (although she did the writing). It is to help him develop speech/story/chronological sequencing skills--as well as imagination. Since he cannot write it falls to you. But I am sure he can tell you all the awesome adventures he and the toy had! The hard part for me has always need to try and keep it in the kids words. Having and Education degree and minor in Litureture made it hard. Of course, you could also jusst ask the teacher, too.

Oh, it gets better. They love to assign all these science projects that the kids lose interest in after about 5 minutes and require the parent to finish it. Or other assignments, displays and presentations that the kids have no idea how to complete, so you have to "help" them. And by help, I mean, do. Good luck!
