My daughter Sydney is in the first grade and doing very well especially in spelling. A couple of weeks ago she came home with her new words and we were studying them for her upcoming test. We came to the word "knit" and I asked her to spell it. She said, "n-i-t". I said, "No, try again." She said, very slowly, "n-i-t". I said, "Sydney, I know you know how to spell this word, try again." Very aggravated and verrrrry slowly (like I was just not getting the whole picture) she spelled, "N-I-T!" Finally I told her the correct spelling, k-n-i-t. She looked at me, hands on hips and said, "THE K'S SILENT!!!"
