Spelling Tests...

  1. I
  2. a
  3. me
  4. my
  5. you

These words were my daughter's spelling test words last week.

I made a huge mistake. I asked the teacher for something a little more challenging. Here are a few of my daughter's spelling words for this week:

  1. excited
  2. unfortunate
  3. elegantly
  4. excellent
Did I mention that my kid is in the 1st grade? I believe in challenging my girl, but not totally discouraging her. These words made her cry. Hoping for a happy medium here. Most of the other kids in her class got these words:
  1. he
  2. she
  3. we
  4. me
  5. the

How about "happy", "sad", "fancy" and "great" as a happy medium? Sounds like the teacher got a little carried away for the second week of school, eh?

Keep on her (as I know you will), and by working together, you'll both give your daughter a great year.

:) Well, Perhaps she should just have her work ahead with the lists? Like maybe have her do the list for the second grade. I doubt the second grade is doing the list that she got.
