Spelling Words

Eli and I were working on his spelling words. First I have him read through them so he can pronounce them. Then we discuss their meanings, trying to broaden his vocabulary.

This week we have a lot of "ive" words. We got to "attractive." I said, "Do you know what attractive means?"

"Not really."

"I'll use it in a sentence: Dad thinks I'm attractive." Then I wiggle my eyebrows at him.

"Oh, okay," as he half rolls his eyes at me, smirking.

"So Eli, do you think I'm attractive?" Why do I do set myself up like this?

He laughs, "No, you're only attractive to Dad!"

I cracked up and then teased him and smothered him with hugs. That kid!

Awe, spelling... I was terrible, but I could memorize, so my mom recorded all my words on cassette tape, and I listened to her all week in order to pass the tests. Vocabulary is very important!!! Glad you work on it. I seem to use the wrong (but close) word frequently. I have been going through moms recipes, and know where I got my spelling skills. Almost can't figure some out!
