We've done snow and mow and fox and on. And vsof and ewc and xefv. She's mostly doing this activity on her own, only asking me for help reading her more unusual creations. It's so fascinating to watch her pursue this work at her own initiative. And convenient for me that she's so independent about it, as I'm able to talk to her and use Facebook at the same time. :o)
Well, she wanted to know what fx spelled. We sounded it out together and decided "fffks" doesn't really sound like much of anything. I absentmindedly suggested that a vowel might help. She asked me to say the vowels again, so I said "a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y." And then I returned to my
Methodical child that she is, she began creating new words and saying them aloud:
"fax . . .fex . . . fix . . . fox . . . [wait for it] . . . fux!"
And then of course, fixated on the last word, chanting it over and over again. "Mom, Mom! I think 'fx' spells 'fux'!"
This homeshcooling thing is a blast!
