Spelling

P wrote me a note:
"I Like sgoL
MoMMy.
SbeshaLy
riting.
I Am Happy."

Once I realized that "sgoL" refers to school, the note made sense.
Although the spelling is not perfect, it shows progress in topics I haven't made an issue of. For example, she correctly used the silent e in "like" and the "ing" in "riting". Since she isn't reading fluently yet, I'm not expecting her to spell well, but it's fun to see that she's picking up some rules without being formally taught them.

I'm also glad that she likes school, and is happy. Given that she usually complains about copywork, I'm also strengthened in my resolve to make her do things that are good for her even if she doesn't appear to like them at the time.
