How to Humiliate a Perfectionist for Her Good Work

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

I found the following pieces of writing in Karenna's room.  Normally she has me dictate how to spell words, letter by letter, but apparently she has begun trying to sound words out and spell them on her own.

Responsibility:
Remember your folder. Remember your book bag. KarennaWriting3.jpg


I was very proud and told her I was going to scan them and post them on the blog.

"Did I spell them right?" she asked.

"Well, you spelled them very well," I answered.  "Well enough for me to figure out what you were writing."

"Can you tell me how to spell them right and then I'll fix them before you put them in your blog?"

"No.  I'm very proud that you did it by yourself.  If I told you how to spell them, it would be cheating."
