Wordly Wise Book 3

is finally done! I am looking forward to starting book 4 as I found a test booklet to go with it. It's more about using the vocabulary words in sentences to make sure there's comprehension of the meaning. I don't actually test Niles for spelling of words. In this age, when even my Iphone will try to correct my spelling, I don't see the point. I am an avid reader, but only a mediocre speller. I've read some articles which say that there is a genetic component to spelling. I prefer to be a creative speller & use spellcheck at the end. I find it more valuable to have a large and accessible vocabulary and witty repertoire than know how to spell it....
