Learning to Spell

Yesterday, at lunch, Caleb said to me, "Mom, E-G-G spells egg". Surprised but delighted, I asked him, "where did you learn that?". "From my Star Wars computer", he answered. It was like something clicked. For the rest of the day, he was all about spelling. He'd try a few simple words on his own, and when I'd ask him some, he'd take some time to listen to the sounds, and then spell it out. It was amazing! I love to see him so excited about learning! Today, when the bus came to pick him up for school (hooray, they finally have the busing situation worked out!), he ran up to Miss Angie the driver, and said, "B-U-S, bus!"
