The Touble With English: Part I
Skylar read another book on her own tonight, without being asked. This time it was Drip, Drop, about a mouse who can't stop his roof from leaking. She even let me count it as our main night-night book, since it took her a while. Here are the words that gave her particular trouble:
eyes shoe know anything starting with "cl" or "pl"
Mind you, she did just fine with "toes." But the "oe" in that word apparently bears no relation to the one in "shoe." On the other hand, she had little difficulty with former tough ones like "they," "then," and "that." And she figured out "snuggled" pretty quickly. Still, I do sometimes wish I were helping my child learn a language with sensible orthography such as Spanish or German.
