Adrienne, Andre and I spent part of Friday afternoon playing Scrabble. I decided that this year, for at least part of the year, we would practice spelling using games only. No boring curriculum, no long lists of spelling words to memorize. At least for now...!
We are using the book that came with the Scrabble game to check on the words we are coming up with, and once we find out if it is a "real" word, then if we don't know what it means or forgot, we look it up in the dictionary. Andre seems to be really good at coming with words that we never heard of before! Celeste is even better at inventing words, but she didn't play this time!
