My son, Sam, is obsessed with practicing his spelling words.
You'd think coming from a mom, who is a teacher, that would be a good thing,
And it is...
Except that Sam is a REALLY good speller!
He has them memorized after looking at the list for maybe 5 minutes.
But he tells me he might forget them while he is sleeping.
So, we practice ...and practice ...and practice some more.
This week his words are ones that have -ar- and -or- sounds.
You know - farm, start, porch, fork,etc.
Well... mid study session Sam decides he needs a drink of juice but doesn't want me to stop calling off words.
So, from the couch, I'm calling off words and he is spelling them.
Then I call off "Horn."
From the kitchen, Sam yells, "PORN?? THAT'S NOT ONE OF MY WORDS!!"
So I shout back "HORN!!!!"
Glad I didn't have to explain that one...
