My six year old, Rebecca, is learning to read. She has been a little over-confident, thinking that she can spell anything. This morning I found names written on the kids' cups (which she kindly filled).
The phonics are in place, just not the right letters to make the sounds.
Nelson = Nelsin
Lydia = Liteu
Joshua = Joshuwu
I thought you might get a laugh from that this morning.
