She's Super Smart and Funny

"Doing homework" with The Princess is one of my favorite things to do right now.  Just a couple of weeks ago she totally surprised E and me by reading an entire book to us.  It's so cool to see her learning and really applying herself.  She's discovered a love for reading that I just adore.  That can be nothing but good for her down the road.

Her favorite pastime in the car or while she's complaining about attentively watching her brother's baseball games is to spell words that I call out to her.  We go right through her sight words and she proudly spells them for me.

c-a-t
r-u-n
a-l-l

And we go on and on.  Good times for a while, but she definitely likes it more than me. I was trying to mix it up at baseball last night and throw in some words that we hadn't done before. So I started adding in things we could see.

t-r-e-e
b-a-t
s-h-o-e

She offers up teeth.

"Yeah, that's a good one.  Be sure you sound it and then spell it."

t-e-e-f

Just like it sounds.  Perfect.

Ha! I love it! My little always say "dat" instead of that. I guess she'll grow out of it before she has to spell it!

She's totally on to something. I love this post. Instead of "something" - by daughter says "sumfink" and as a result that is how I now say it at home. I have a feeling when I teach her how to spell it - that's what I will say :-)
