My DD made me a card to say she loove me to bist!

I loove her to bist too !

Mewseum. For cats, maybe?

But I also liked DD's notice on her door when she was very young and really not at all advanced in terms of writing. She obviously couldn't work out how to manage 'Private' or 'No admittance' or even 'Keep out'. So we were just faced with '[DD] sez NO'.

Love once a pony tum grin
not a phonetic spelling but DS once handed me a "book" he'd made and written on it was "this is the end". Rather deep and depressing for a 5 yo, I was a little concerned...till I turned over and the other side said "this is the frunt"

Story writing with my Year 1 class...

"Wons a pony tum..."

Once upon a time...

I encourage my pupils to put a wiggly line under words they know they can't spell, rather than playing safe and only using words they think they know. A year 2 boy today had me thinking when I read walar.

Eventually from the context ("first the shoot appears and then the leaves then walar! The flower is grown..." or words to that effect). I've corrected the spelling to voila! And told my TA, who takes his phonics group, that she can explain it after half term....

My DD regularly uses "cunt" in place of can't blush

How about 'raped' for wrapped? shock grinDH did that one when he was about 5, copying out the Nativity story.

I've got a new one today: DS has written a story at school about a blue bug called Mistu Bloobug grin

spiderlight Wed 22-May-13 13:17:18

DS keeps his big hexbugs, and the controller for the RC spider, in a box that he has decorated to make it look like a little house and labelled in big red letters: 'Hexbug Hows. Ant, Spidu, Larvu, Cunt' (He ran out of room to write 'Cuntrola').

not exactly spelling but my DS learnt the alphabet song in nursery when he was 3, he was so pleased with himself.

He was singing

DD is always writing about 'sparklee younecorns' (sparkly unicorns!) grin

The DDs were playing upstairs when I was given a note that said 'amtss acuming. run qick evywu' They were playing Firefighters.

I will forever treasure the first piece of. proper writing DS brought home. It was about butterflies and other flying things and included the line "He moovs with his friends". It totally got me and I don't think I ever want him to get all his spellings right, not for a few more years anyway!

grin Primary! DS2 used to say c*nt for can't and we are not from Yorkshire, he also said fucky for froggy, all very embarrassing!

RustyBear Tue 21-May-13 22:12:21

My favourite was 'The snack slithered down the tree'. It was a long time ago, so I can't remember how he spelt 'slithered' but I still have visions of yoghurt dripping down the branches....
