Spelling by Madeline
I just asked Madeline if she recalled how to spell her spelling words for this week. They don't get spelling homework so I just quiz her randomly throughout the week. She seldom gets less than 102 (they have a bonus word each week) on a spelling test. She was very upset with herself yesterday when she came home with her test from before the winter break and it was a 95. Oh the horror, she got an imperfect A! I told her so long as it was an A she had no reason to complain.
She decided to rattle off the spellings for her current list very quickly and this gem of a spelling was in the middle of the correctly spelled words:January- G-A-N-U-A-R-Y
Gotta love it! Ladies and gentlemen, I have your future National Spelling Bee winner right here!
And this calls to mind the lovely spelling for banana that I saw on the closed captioning for the news while I was sitting in the waiting room at the medical facility where Bryan had his upper endoscopy performed yesterday. Are you ready for it? Banana-Bough Nana. I was laughing so hard when I saw that up on the screen. Here I am incredibly stressed out for Bryan (I have severe issues with tubes going down loved one's throats after my grandmother's slow death by colon cancer.) and this little gem of a spelling for banana comes across the screen.
