Ah, I can see those little imaginations being fired!
Those books are worth a look, thanks. Let me guess by your new wallpaper, you have been daydreaming about Lexikons in meetings again!
We’re having a great run. The kids are as obsessed with typewriters as I am. I’m convinced that young children are better off on typewriters over computers: the instant feedback, the sound, the touch, the stuff you all know. I’ve never had a class write like this, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence. Half of my kids now own typewriters. There’s talk of a type-in at a local library in April.
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing, Richard.Some of my favorite writing is randomly spewed nonsense typed by friends playing with my typewriter, producing a page of their own. I'm pretty sentimental about those types of typed notes.
Typewriter poetry! Love your blog, and that Oldenburg menu. One of the kids in my class has a pink Royal.
