So I guess I might have been a little more nervous about Maxim's first spelling test than he was. Today was the day he had to spell words like: can, man, is, it, cat, mat, had, hat, I, and the hardest one of all...the.
I didn't realize it but "the" is spelled nothing like it sounds...ta-ha-eee. So Maxim and I made up a song about "the" to help him remember. It must of worked because he aced the test.
I'm a little nervous about this method of learning through song...I'm reminded of a certain episode of "Cheers"...you remember..."Albania, Albania, you boarder on the Adriatic...".
