Second Grade Spelling

"Miss Eliza?"

"Yes, L?"

"How do you spell, "ovum?"

"Ovum?  What do you mean, L?  Can you use it in a sentence for me?"

"Sure.  Like, '...there were a hundred ovum...'"

"Ah, L.  You mean 'of them' then.  Two words."

"Two words?  Really?  For 'ovum'?!  Huh!"

I shouldn't be so surprised.  This comes from my same second grade class that believes fairy tales start with "Wunsa pona time...."

Maybe by the end of the year I can get all ovum to spell better so we can live Happily Ever After.
