Here's how we do spelling around here on a sunny day...
And when that got old yesterday, we moved on to chalk. (We did LOTS of spelling yesterday.) Toben came home to a driveway covered in spelling words, along with a few happy faces and random pictures.
When it's not so nice, we do spelling bees. The girls loved Akeelah and the Bee--and so did I. (If you haven't seen it, do!) It made them decide that spelling is kind of fun and makes it seem more like a game than school.
I love spelling. Always have. In fact, in the fifth grade I won the all-school (that's K-12) spelling bee. It's the only trophy I ever won. Unless you count the one our dog Obie (short for Obadiah) won for the Mongrel Marathon at the dog track when I was in the third or fourth grade.
Do you have any trophies?
