Misspelled words by State
Sauerkraut?! Eww, not even worth spelling. And why are so many people trying to spell chihuahua? But college and Wisconsin are the ones that really made me laugh.
I hate April Fools and everything that goes along with it, but this is hilarious.
Although I might challenge the spelling of 'wazamata'
In the last 4 days, I have seen every one of these 2nd grade spelling words spelled/used incorrectly on facebook.
Oh yes. "Looking, covering, writing and checking does not teach spelling. Looking for little words inside other words, and
doing word searches are just time fillers. And writing your “spelling” words in spirals or backwards is just plain stupid."
Knowing what the words mean can absolutely help with spelling. It also helps you figure out the meaning of unfamiliar or foreign language words. No more 'rainbow colored words' for homework!
All in Vain
That unfortunate moment that you misspell a word because your dad used it in the wrong context in his example sentence...
Haha, oops, dad.
Spelling with Rice
I understand that kids learn all different ways, and I applaud teachers for assigning work with that in mind, but I can assure you that we will not be choosing the option to 'practice your spelling words by writing them with your finger or an unsharpened pencil in a bowl of dry uncooked rice.'
Killjoy? Yep. Partypooper? For sure.
Facebook has spellcheck! Facebook has spellcheck! This means I don't have to suffer through misspelled posts anymore, right?! Right? Right...?
Spelling Bee Champ
Is there such thing as a Potty Word Spelling Bee? Because my five-year-old could take the title.
For the sake of my sanity...
I am begging you-- if you are going to make one of those cute little signs that are so popular-- like subway art, image with a cute saying, captioned photo-- PLEASE pay attention to your spelling!
It doesn't matter how cute/funny/clever it is, seeing "Theirs a party in aisle 17" or "Your rocking those mom jeans" ruins the whole thing. And seeing it 49 times in my feed as it continues to gain popularity, bugs the life out of me.
