Where did this kid come from?
My oldest kid's in second grade. He has a daily journaling assignment and today's was to write four questions. He's scribbling away when suddenly he asks "Mom, how do you spell existence?"

Huh?

I blink a couple times, then provide the answer.

Here's the questions he came up with:

What is the reson of humens?
What is the reson of erth?
What is the reson of the sun?
What is the reson of existence?


He can't spell for shit, but those are some humdinger questions. I guess I'm doing well on teaching him to examine the world around himself. Is philosopher a reasonable career goal to steer him toward?

Reading books is one way to improve the spelling skill as well as vocabulary of your son.

Who cares if he can't spell - there's always spell checker! And those are some humdinger questions. Deep thinker there. That's much harder to teach than spelling! Good job, Mom!
