Funny... and Smart!

Part of Tom's daily homework assignment is "word study", where we review his weekly list of words. Usually I'll read the word, then put it in a sentence for him, ie: "Have. I have a new toy." Thomas will then spell the word.

Today's word study session had a conversation like this:

E: "Vote. Who are you going to vote for?"

Tom: "I'm not telling... but the word is V-O-T-E."

How cute Elise. He sounds so smart. I know how those weekly spelling lists are we go through it with our three in school and I do the same thing make the word into a sentence for them. It really help especially when the word is the same but a different meaning. Hope you are doing good.
