Now this picture doesn't make me feel so bad. Last night I was helping my son go over his spelling words. Today is his test. I would give him the words to spell. He wrote them down. Then we would go over the ones he missed. There were only 8 words, yet he managed to missed on average 4 every time! After about 1/2 hour I said, "Go upstairs and have your dad give them to you." Survivor was on, you know.
After about 1 minute he came back downstairs, "I got them all right mom!". Hmm... We'll see about that when the test comes back home.
This morning on the way to school, I was giving my son his spelling words again.
"How do you spell still?"
"Good! How do you spell spot?"
"No." Then he finally figured it out.
"How do you spell down?"
"How do you spell which?"
Then I quickly reminded him how to spell them.
"So, how'd I do mom?"
