Writers: Help my kid learn to spell

My son, James, is learning to read. (Yes, kids read in kindergarten now, which would have made kindergartener me immensely jealous.) He’s doing pretty well, except when it comes to passing his current set of “sight words” that he has to be able to spell from memory before moving onto the next reading level.

I’d like to double down on this vocabulary list, with an extra emphasis on the words he’s struggling with. And since I know a ton of writers, I was hoping to tap your collective creativity and get a few new stories for him to read.

Here’s the list. Asterisks mark words he’s having extra trouble remembering how to spell, and would ideally be present in all stories:

all
for
he
with*
as
this*
have*
they*
was*
his

had
were*
of*
but
do*
your
not
what*
up
said*

(And yes, some of this is obviously due to the loss of the letter thorn, but what are you gonna do?)

Post the stories here. Toss in a link to an image that goes with the story, if you like. I’ll print out each of the stories for him and incorporate them into his reading.

And thanks.
