I don’t talk much about home schooling because snooze, amirite?
It’s actually because of my crazy strong, somewhat unconventional opinions and the judgmental ‘tude I’m trying to quit. But yea, the snooze thing, too.
Anyway, my six-year-old has a super fun time typing random words on the computer (she even titled this post) and I thought it would be awesome to remember it forever, so I’m putting it here because my big, beautiful brain isn’t so great in the memory department.

Those misspelled words are supposed to be ‘shell’ and ‘mirror’ and ‘zebra’ and ‘house’ and ‘pumpkin’.
Which brings me to my main point – teaching English/spelling/reading is hard, you guys!
Sure, the ‘o’ and the ‘w’ together sound like “ow”, but so do ‘o’ and ‘u’. Have fun figuring that one out, kid! And yes, ‘u’ does sound like “uh”, but so does the ‘a’, I guess, when you put it at the end of ‘zebra’.
I explain and she laughs and we eat blueberry pancakes and it’s cool.
