Olive on the Bonus Letter Rule. Or not.

Last week in first grade Olive was introduced to the the Bonus Letter Rule. This reopened a whole new can of insecurity over spelling. Yay! Ya know, because she doesn't know all the rules of English yet, and she's about to turn six and a half.

Writing and illustrating a book with bunnies for funsies while her brother does his homework:

"Mom, I think fur has one r and fur-ry has two. Is that correct?"
"Spell it."
Little giggles from Olive.
"Can you start over?"
Hysterical laughter around the table.

Good one.
