Yes, you're right.

These were two of dd's spellings this week, though she didn't spell them like that. Funnily enough, it was the teacher who was testing the class, who spelt them like that. The children had to correct her. She was angry.

it's one thing to make a spelling mistake, or be weak on a few longer words, but that's very very poor.

Is this your DDs regular class teacher?

Jux Sun 13-Sep-09 11:49:53

No, but she's going to be there every week to do their spellings shock and [horror]

trickerg, what was yours? All I can think of is dwarf (but I've been reading a book about an albino, hunchbacked dwarf, so have them on my mind).

we had a few odd ones in primary, too

they let one teacher set the spellings for the whole year and for some reason it always seemed to be the weakest speller who got landed with the job

was also amused by the choice of spelling words; you'd expect it to depart from the teaching of literary, so that one week you'd be doing diphthongs etc; instead it was to do with whatever theme they were doing elsewhere; so the week they were doing Australia, one of the spellings was Neighbours (with a capital N) hmm

dilemmadilemma got it right - it was giraffe!

I hasten to add, that wasn't a teacher's mistake! grin
