And I thought spelling was for smart people...

Olny srmat poelpe can.

   I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

I'd like to see an example of that somewhere...



;)



Ooooooh - that WAS an example...took me a while to notice anything wrong!!!!



So WHAT am I doing spending all of this time teaching my daughter how to SPELL? And those parents who fussed about Inventive Spelling when I was teaching said it would never work. :)

No wonder my kids can't spell! They can't see their mistakes.

This is great!

When I went back to school to get my education certification, one of my professors gave us something like this. It was to prove her point that phonics is only PART of the reading process....that syntax and semantics also plays a part in the process of reading. Really interesting isn't it!!

LOL, actually - I've seen something like that before - and I still love it.

Have I told you lately, I really love to read your blog:)

Thanks now I have a headache! I thought it was very similar to reading my kids' papers-they have creative spellings sometimes.

That is amazing. I read a similar one a while back and it always amazes me that I can read it.

I always enjoy that one. That concept is actually used when teaching dyslexics. It is good to teach the kids to be able to recognize a certain word with the letters mixed up different ways.

3FoldChord said...

thanks for the note. I always have more than enough stuff to teach my kidsmore than they every need to know, yet I still want to get a dozen more cool teaching tools and resources......


but I am getting better

Wow, I was actually able to read that. This makes our Spelling problems seem less important. Thanks for posting this.

I've seen this before and it still amazes me!!!

Fimsey said...

I could read that just as wasily as normal! This makes me feel better about my son's TERRIBLE spelling. I can relax knowing that he doesn't actually have to have the letters in order - he'll be thrilled! hahahaha

Anyway, I have a message for you from Jen aka Jammie....she had to change her blog due to lurkers, so I told her I would discretely tell some of her friends about the move while she sets up her new blog. Her new ID is heartmatters. Stop by and let her know you are aware of the change.



God Bless,

Amber
