Here are two stories that highlight the fabulous job that I’m doing teaching both kids how to spell:
My kindergartner and I were talking about her dad’s favorite store, REI.
Sydney: Mom, I know how to spell REI.
She’s a genius, folks. Genius!
I attended my son’s 4th grade parent-teacher conference. His teacher mentioned that he’s in the top of his class for spelling.
This surprised me. Why?
Because on the very same night as the parent-teacher conference, Will wrote the sign below to keep his sister out of his room:
By the way, when Will was looking over my shoulder just now he said, “You spelled ‘starz’ wrong.”
There’s hope after all!
