How do you spell...? Any word. Any word she knows, wants to know, heard somewhere, thinks she may have heard somewhere, you must spell it for her. And then tell her how many letters are in that word. And IF there is a letter "L", watch out! Her favorite letter and then she tells you every word she knows with an "L" in it (or as many as she can think of). She looked at us tonight and said, "T-O-Y spells toy" and when I asked who taught her that, she said "Woody" (from Toy Story). Glad she's paying attention. I laugh in the face of people who say TV teaches nothing!
