Word To Your Mother

Spell BLOG. And the difference between followers vs active readers. Victo explains, “…vastly different, but that is not something you can explain to a five year old during spelling word practice.”

“Spell the word frog.”

“F-R-O-G.” He searched my eyes hopefully to see if he had gotten it right.

I nodded. He beamed, proudly.

“Good! Spell… Blog? Wait. Really? Blog is your spelling word?”

“YOU have a blog, mommy! How many followers do you have now?”

Oh. You know do about that, don’t you?

I made up a number. My actual number of followers vs the “real” number of active readers… vastly different, but that is not something you can explain to a five year old during spelling word practice.

“Wow!” He sounded impressed.

I may have exaggerated a wee bit.

“Ok, now spell the word. Blog.”

“B-L-O-G.”

“Perfect!” I gave him a high five.

The things they teach kids in Pre-K nowadays… *shakes head in disbelief*
