Kid Quotes::Vol.25

This just had to be written down. Brendan had a journaling assignment today. I gave him 20 mins to work on it after he said he was done after 1 sentence.
Also, side note, it is so weird to me to have such a good reader who is such a horrible speller. The kid is the worst speller, even though he has been reading these same words since he was 4! Just goes to show you that reading is so much more than de-coding words!

Here's Brendan's journaling assignment from today: (spelling corrected!)

written by Brendan: I am feeling happy. Yesterday I did soccer practice, and I tried to write a book. Today I am going to read the Bible. When I am a grown-up I'm going to get a job. I am going to get the same job as my Dad. I am going to help dead people get to the hospital.

It just cracks me up!

LOL! They say such funny things! Miles is a great reader but ask him to spell dog and it looks lie dag, or dug. He never gets the vowels right. I can't understand how he even reads! Hopefully our spelling program will help because I have no idea how to teach him spelling!

I think that he should go into fisheries, stay out of the dead people business, they are dead, they can't fish.

How funny! I've always been a good reader but am a horrific speller. Jim's a really slow reader but can spell anything. Gotta' love the human brain!
