This year, our family theme for the school year is all about being okay with making mistakes, and learning from them. I just realized I forgot to post about the theme here on this blog, so expect it (I hope) next week.
I was really pleased to find that Miss. Superstar, our resident third grader, totally got it.
I mentioned to her a few mistakes she’d made in the spelling after I complimented her on her great thoughts. I presented it to her as how cool it was that she was writing about mistakes, and had a perfect example to do something she was explaining. She took it well. YAY!
I shared how I make mistakes all the time too, and that I’m grateful there’s a delete key, and an update draft button to fix all those mistakes.
The best part? No tears over some spelling mistakes. Sweet.
