The Friday before spring break = not a good time for a big spelling review

Sheesh! I'm a bit frustrated. I am doing a kind of spelling review/test to make sure she "got" everything we learned in spelling this year since we are done with our program.

Well, she is misspelling words she writes by herself all the time, and crying because I won't tell her how to spell something or give her a hint. This is not a spelling lesson, it's to see what she KNOWS. Even during the spelling lessons she got them right on the first try without me helping her. So, I told her we would take a break and do it later. She threw a fit saying she wanted to do it now. I don't let her yell at me like that, or tell me what we WILL do, so I told her she could go to her room until she is ready to speak nicely.

Lesson learned, do not attempt and end of year spelling test the day before spring break. Lol! Whew!
