They Will Keep You Humble II

It's Monday...back to the homeschooling routine.

My nine-year-old sits down next to me and asks "Do you like what I writed?" Yep...two syllables...ri-ted. I asked her if she had ever read that word in a book. She responded "No". I filled her in..."That is because there is no such word. The right word to use is 'wrote'."

She promptly looked at me and said, "I should have said 'drawed'." Oh yes...she did say that.

As I told my sister and dear friend today when I shared the story...the books about my homeschooling approach and success will fill the humor section.

P.S. I am glad to report that the spell check feature of this blog did catch those two words...that don't exist...except in the world of my students.
