My poor longsuffering children. Their mommy/teacher often has a one track mind. It can lend focus to our days, but it can make their spelling lessons a bit unusual.
In yesterday’s lesson, the words followed our list, but the sentences I made up as examples had a recurring theme.
Shouted: The frantic woman shouted, “Give me a brownie and no one gets hurt.”
About: I am thinking about brownies.
Stout: If I eat too many brownies I may become stout.
Mood: Chocolate puts me in a wonderful mood.
Brood: I may brood and pout if I don’t get a brownie.
Thinner: I would be thinner if I ate fewer brownies.
And so we continued through the list of words…. By the end they were laughing heartily at their silly mommy. And naturally, I served up brownies to my students–and to me!
