how do you spell....?

My daughter is at that age where she wants to write things out, but can't yet spell. Well, she can spell a few words. How do you spell love? How do you spell duck? How do you spell Christmas? Some of them she has figured out on her own. For example, she likes to draw on a few pages and then staple them together and make a story book. One day I noticed that on the back of a few of these books was written "D End." Funny, huh? She also was careful to draw a barcode on the back, thus making her books authentic and purchaseable. My favorite, though, was the other day when she came downstairs, pen and paper in hand, and asked in all earnestness, "Mom, how do you spell 'No Pigs Are Allowed To Get Dirt On Nothing' ?"

It's a long word, but I agree with the sentiment.

  2. My 4 year-old will ask me to read her a word then she'll go through the whole page picking out that word. It's fun seeing her start to learn about words.

  3. Oh, so funny! Is that actually NO pigs? At all? Also, do you have the scanner for that barcode or would you need to take it to the store to buy it?
