The Double O Spelling Rule and Butt Cheeks

The Double O Spelling Rule and Butt Cheeks

Hmmmm… Short funny story. I was playing with a seven year old talking about the OO rule in reading and spelling. You know, the OO as in book and look. Well, I said that one way to remember the sound is to think of the OO as googily eyes. Yes, a strange analogy but they are often the best. She informed me that the O’s didn’t look at all like eyes. I asked her what she saw. She said… butt cheeks. So, rolling with the flow of what I’m given, I said it’s like when you see someone with butt cheeks hanging out of their pants and you make the sound ‘OO’ in surprise. She loved that! And when I needed to help her spell a word with an O, I said it was half a butt cheek and she knew exactly what I meant. Hilarious!
