Kenson made his first stab at invented spelling today. (You know, where they guess what letters make the sounds, and yes, it really is called that in teacherese.) You'll never guess on what word? Beatrice. As in the town. B-A-J-R-S. Beatrice. He had B-A already on the fridge with the magnets when I walked in. I heard him saying the sounds to himself "Beeeee Aaaaaaa Chhhhhh." The "Ch" stumped him. (Those silly digraphs...they trick kids all the time!) He settled on "J". Then I helped him by saying the last sounds but he picked the letters out. Too funny, I mean, usually kids just spell cat.
