Fainjin gets five spelling words to learn each week.  He’s only 6, so the words are ones like “he” and “went”.  (Pearl gets 20 words like “efficiency” and “character”).

He finds it easier to think when he’s building something, I think, and so quite often I practise with him while he’s playing with his Lego.  I’ll say the word and he’ll spell it out.  He does pretty well, usually getting them all right.

Tonight I pulled out his spelling notebook and he exclaimed, “Yay! The guessing game!”

I’m not sure he’s quite grasped the intention of “learning” the spelling words!  (But a snarky part of me wanted to quip, “With an attitude like that, you could be a journalist”…)
