Those Pesky Phonics...

The English language just has too many rules to follow.


As we go along with our spelling lessons {and mind you our kids are doing really well} there are always a few hang-ups on sounds and spellings.

On the bright side, she does remember how to spell the word 'you'.


  1. Oh how funny! And she's right, at least where I was yesterday - it was more than just humid - it was HYOUMID!

  2. This is such a cute picture. The English language is hard! I also love the letters.

  3. i am with her.

    i love writing, i somehow learned this language...God only knows how. a good teacher i suppose...i was homeschooled until grade six. :0) thanks mom.

    but now, practicing spelling words with my kids, when a rule applies 95% of the time, but that other 5% it doesn't---ARGH!

    hope your day is not hyoumid! but is humorus!

  4. You are right, the english language has far too many loop holes! I find her spelling much more creative!

  5. ooo so tough!! She did have the rest of the word right atleast :-)

  6. So cute! My four year old was writing a story the other day. It started out like this: "Wants upon a time..." LOL!

  7. I noticed this the further in our English classes we got. The rules are always changing and there are always exceptions to those rules.

    Ah missing simplicity somewhere.

  8. Too funny! Oh - How I can relate!!!

    Blessings to you,
