    Default Spelling and Grammar Vent Thread #2

    Aaarrrrggghhhhh!!!!!
    My almost 7 year old DD was showing me her writing books from school, and her teacher has corrected her. DD has written a sentence "the worse thing it can do ..." and the teacher has put a "d" after worse!! It's worst! Grrrrr.

    Noooooooo!!!!

    It's been mentioned several times before (probably by me), but I am still seeing so many "discusted" people on here.

    It's disgusted!!!!! Every time I see it I am little bit disgusted and a little bit wanting some custard.

    Don't get me started on DD's teacher's grammar, in particular the misuse of verbs as nouns. Apparently DD brings her "spellings" home and the other day she was "doing learning".

    I've already commented to her for "definately" up on the board in the next classroom, and for the "stationary" list sent home... I'm a bit nervous about getting a reputation as *that* parent who always corrects things.

    I know what you mean. I figure if they haven't learnt by now they probably won't take it on board anyway. I always make sure I say to DD "oops, Miss E made a mistake, that should say "xxx"".

    Apparently DD likes to correct the other kids' errors and gets frustrated when they don't get it. Hmm, wonder where that came from... **looks around and whistles innocently**

    Oh geez. Where on earth do you start when teachers get it wrong too? I'm dreading the day my kids go to school.

    Just when I think I've seen the worst, DD comes out of class this afternoon with a puzzle she made, labelled by the teacher - "Jiggsaw puzzle".

    Unfortunately there's no reason to assume that teachers know any better than anyone else. Most of them have the same education in spelling and grammar as a year 12 student.
