Maliah's favorite activity is learning. No, seriously, the girl is a sponge and as soon as she arrives home from school each day, she is right back to the kitchen table writing words, letters, coloring, cutting, doing addition facts, and reading books. I realized, as she sat at the table the other day that I can officially say I am a "Homeschool" Mom. Yep, indeed, I homeschool my kids every day after school and in addition, I send them to school for 7 more hours. That's some serious learners!
So, as Maliah was writing the other day she was interviewing her Daddy and asking him all sorts of questions. I looked at her paper later to discover her words all phonetically written. They made me giggle ... and I didn't want to forget so I thought I'd jot a few down here. Canyon loves to hear about how when he spelled the word Indian, he wrote NDN. Hey, it sounds like that right? Well, Maliah had several pages ... here is her "writing".
"Dadey Wut Do You Like" - Daddy, what do you like"?
- "Zebruz" - Zebra's
- "Pezza" - Pizza
- "Chocklit" - Chocolate
- "Goldfissh" - Goldfish
- "Fissh" - fish
- "Cofe" - Coffee
- "Bukbed" - bunk bed
- "kikats" - kit kat
- "ifons" - iphone
- "Chinees food" - Chinese food
- "Wofrs" - Waffles
- "Wotrmelin" - Watermelon
- "Jes tooDay" - just today
- "Dofins and horsz" - Dolphins and horses
On another page, she wrote "Pez and Prite Pez". I asked her and that was "Please and Pretty Please"
On the same note, I saw the word "tmorwow". Giggling, I realize she is saying "tomorrow".
I then see the word "yesdrda". Hilarious. That is "yesterday".
The last one I see is "ugin", or perhaps is that "again"?
My little homeschool girl. In the 3 hours you spend each day after school practicing, I am certain that your little head is going 900 miles per hour. I am always blown away at what you already know ... even before I "school" you. On another note, your spelling of words often makes more sense to me than the way it is "suppose" to be.
