Our kids were taught that too, writing without spelling, fortunately my kids had a first grade teacher that taught to the curriculum and also taught phonics out of the boundaries of the curriculum. She was mastered out of John Hopkins, she knew her stuff. I was taught in the era of whole learning, I can't spell worth a darn, if you are not taught phonics it is a bite to spell let alone use a dictionary.
    You need it all! The concepts of Whole Language are valuable but you must have the skills that phonics gives you. It's like with dieting - a good plan involves a balanced approach!

    Howdy gang!

    Finally...enjoying a lazy Friday afternoon off. Oh, how I missed me some half-day Fridays...!
    Tomorrow, I have one more open-close (10a-9p) shift at the Domain bs location that I promised to cover 'cause one of the other guys is still out of town. After that I asked him to please consider me off the radar, in that respect, 'cause I really need my weekends back (other than the occasional weekend shift at TDS, of course...! ). He said he understood but also said the door was always open.

    Anyway, first week back was awesome!
    I already have business cards and the partners are elbowing each other to get my design time, just like the old days...it's just friggin' AWESOME to be back!!!
    I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Instead of the spray Downy Wrinkle Release for clothing, the should have a wrinkle release you spray all over your body and then you do a shake and all of your wrinkles go away.

    I don't know if anyone knows this about me, but this is the only Disney site i'm on. And that is because you already know how I don't like the DISboards, and if I go anywhere els theres MakAttack getting people posting to her what R rated thing they E Mailed her mom. (I'm kidding, I like MakAttack and all but really your 14, and my mom and dad would not just say we are going on a cruise JUST BECAUSE LOU MONGELLO SAYS SO!) I also like the people here, everybody seems to be mentally sane.

    Hmmm...can't figure out what's goin' on...
    EVERY single time I try to get to page 9 to read it, it takes me back to page 5.
    Hopefully it'll be fixed later...

    Laterrrrr...!!!

    DD and I went into a used book store today. I found an old Disney book. Pictures galore of Disney under construction for the first 20 years, about an inch or so thick, coffee table book. Can't wait to dive in. $8.

    I am such a fan of kindle, sometimes a book is a book.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    I figured out how I am going to ask my crush out to Prom!!


    So we are going to Disney together. So I am going to get him to ride Everest with me (with my 2 other friends). My two friends will hold signs that say will you go to and then I will have a sign that says Prom when the picture is taken! I hope it works out
