rhymes with college
When asked to spell the word "knowledge," the majority of my students write "nollege." Makes sense phonetically, but seeing it misspelled again and again is making me cross-eyed. Hence, the above impromptu wall display. It's like I've created an ad campaign for a single word. A sort of Sesame Street-esque tack, no? But it's a smart approach, I think. The more they see it spelled correctly, the more it will sink in. And, hopefully, the more of it they will actually possess.
