Emily's kindergarten teacher, likes for the kids to use "invented
spelling," which is just a fancy way to say "write the
letters you think you hear and don't worry if they're right."
Em has resisted this because, I think, she has been exposed to
enough words and has asked us to spell enough things for her that
she knows there is a "right" way and a "wrong"
way, and doesn't want to be "wrong." For this piece
of homework we finally got her to write her own letters! She had
to list 3 items she would place in a kindergarten time capsule.
FODO AV ME 1 = photo of me
DROO A PISHR 2 = draw a picture
NAMS IV FRANS 3 = names of friends
