Today during dictation, Reece had to spell the word 'allowed'. I wasn't sure if she could spell this one on her own, but I decided to wait and see how she did before I offered my input. I'm getting better at that! LOL She spelled it with no trouble, and then she checked with me to see if it was right. When I told her it was she said, "I've seen that word many times in books." Then she thought for a moment and added,
"So you see, Mama, books not only help you with your reading, they also help you with your spelling!"
She's my little Charlotte Mason poster-child! LOL
