Recently we painted both the kid’s bedrooms. They each found the colors they wanted. Emma chose a beautiful sea greenish blue and a luxurious red for the baseboard, exposed pipes and doors. She picked out a gold-colored mesh to cover her new four-poster bed. Her new room is beautiful and I have found myself wandering into it, just so I can soak up the beauty of her newly painted walls, her princess bed with golden, cascading canopy and all her stuffed animals filling the floor to ceiling bookshelves.
Yesterday during Emma’s RPM (Rapid Prompting Method) session Emma wrote that she intended to write a story. I’m including a link here to the post I wrote not long ago entitled “How We Got Here” for those of you new to this blog. This is the story Emma wrote by typing on a qwerty keyboard attached to an iPad. This is Emma’s first full story written entirely on a qwerty keyboard! And as always, Emma approved this post and the accompanying photograph of her room.
The Girl Magician
From the bedroom of a house in Southern Georgia, there lived a girl named Judy. Her room was dazzling. Her time was spent by herself, and she liked it that way.
She had visiting hours for family to check out the best room in the house. When visiting hours were over, Judy got to work on secret projects. She noticed that when she changed the color of her scarf, many other things changed also. When the blue scarf attached to her, she became very talkative. The orange one made her laugh and the brown one made her cry.
Judy wore a yellow scarf during visiting hours one day. Family was calling her name, but they did not see her. She was invisible. Judy was someone with magic powers.
