5 year old spelling
Yesterday, Bee (aged 5) sat with his dad and wrote a list of country names - can you recognise them?
We were debating whether his 'eea' endings for 'indeea' and 'ostraileea' are particularly elongated (eea instead of 'ia' or even 'ya') because of his dad's Russian pronunciation of these country names. We might try it again next week with me discussing the countries to see whether the spelling comes out different.
