How did you learn how to spell?
September 6, 2019

1 and for TwitterWhen Katie was in the first grade she asked her teacher how to spell “mouse’s.” Her teacher said, “It’s mice.” Katie posed the question a different way, but she was six years old. She didn’t have a word for “possessive” yet. “I just told you,” the teacher answered again. “It’s mice.”

Katie gave up. She wrote “mice,” she handed in the assignment, her teacher crossed out “mice” with a red pencil and wrote “mouse’s,” she had her answer.


Whatever it takes!
