We’ve been working with Hope lately with her spelling. I’m pretty impressed at how quickly she has learned to spell thus far. She’s started with the simple words like her name, cat, dog, car, and go. She even got a kick out of picking her own words to spell. She has tried words like daughter and flower – she hasn’t quite remembered those words but she always wants to try. She was in fits laughing because she could spell the word fart a month or two ago. I know, not the best word to teach a kid – but it can’t hurt if she’s continuing to want to learn.
There are many times that she is sitting with Bella pretending to read or spell. Often times she’s just blurting off letters thinking she’s spelling a word. It’s rather cute – it’s like she’s making up her own words!
Today she proved that she’s remembered two new words: stop and off. How funny is it that Jason taught her those two words? Good thinking Daddy! Every day I come home from work he has taught her something new. Today she came running to me: “Mommy, I know my whole address”. And she surely did!
