Spellings with my 8 year old have always been a bit of a chore- we start on Mondays and practice at least 3 times until the tests on Fridays. This week they had homonyms- oh boy! So they have to understand the different meaning to be able to spell the right one. By Tuesday we had got him to stop spelling "Wright" for putting words on a page/ correct! Wednesday we found that his passion for electronics was helpful for spelling " I LED you round the circuit board" LED( little electronics light) get it? ( well he did so that was the point).
On Thursday I was ready to quit when this happened
"Through- what can you see through the window?"( as opposed to threw a ball)
" A house" can back the answer! Hmm - advice of the day- don't try to argue logic with young lads!
p.s. "ower" is not how you spell "belonging to us"!
Anyone else love the English language!
