In the middle are two stick figures, one unsmiling with crossed arms and a smaller one smiling and holding a Slinky.]
Frankly, I was pretty impressed; I'm poor at phonetics, but mostly this looks like pretty reasonable sounding-out attempts to me. The only correction I offered was "this" for "they," because she read it as "this" and just wrote the wrong thing down (she does this a lot when reading, substituting some other short common word that starts the same way). Also, the Slinky is pretty great.
She is also into maps lately, and today brought home this one I rather like:

And just so the Pip's artistic efforts aren't slighted, a drawing he made and showed off to Chad the next day:
