Kaya’s Reading: Kaya’s learning to read, and doing pretty well, I suppose. She’ll often run into a word she doesn’t know, and then spell it and ask for help. So one day she spells a word, and it sounds like “D-O-N-it.”
I say, “Donut.”
She says, “No.”
Then she spells it again.
I figure it out, take a look, and tell her it’s, “D-O-N-apostrophe-T.”
I ask her to read it back.
She says, “D-O-N-persoppetty-T.”
Two weeks later, and she’s still calling it a “persopetty.”
Too cute, so I’m going to let her figure this one out on her own.
