Spelling and Journals

Every day my students write in their journals. The kids write great stuff in there. I don't know who has more fun: the kids when they write or me when I read. I have been meaning to write some of the cute stuff they write so I won't forget it. One of the interestingly spelled words that I came across this trimester was this:
15yeda
I read, and re-read that over and over and then I got it. The little girl who wrote it was trying to tell me about her big sister's quinceañera coming up. The way she spelled it made perfect sense. That is how it sounds phonetically!

Hey, you're right, 15yeda, makes sense now. :-)

I usually do something similar to that since that's such a long word, but it looks like 15era
