    5 Year Old Spelling Hero.

    Hey kids it’s Beatz, back again to give you the latest news in spelling with this week’s edition of the Spelling Buzz.

    I had to come and tell you about the bravest most awesome speller I have come across in a long time.  His name is Nathaniel Dancy Jr., and you won’t believe the great and heroic thing he did for his dad using his spelling knowledge.  Nathaniel was riding home one day with his dad Nathaniel Sr., when his dad became very sick behind the wheel.  He was suffering from a stroke and an aneurysm.  Nathaniel Sr. was able to pull over without harming himself or his son, but was not able to call for help.  This is where Nathaniel Jr. bravely stepped in.  He called his grandmother for help, but did not know his exact location.  This is where his spelling skills were put to the test.  He had to figure out how to lead his grandmother and also his mother to him and his father in order to save his dads life.

    Nathaniel Jr. looked around for signs that could reveal his location.  He was able to spell F-U-R-N-I-T-U-R-E, which was the store that was the closest to his location.  When his mom couldn’t quite understand him, he told her to use her  “active listening skills” to understand what he was saying.  Sounds like a pretty smart 5 year-old right?  He then told them that they were near a tunnel.  When his mom realized what furniture store he was referring to, she was able to locate them in time to save his father and get him to the hospital safely.

    Thanks to Nathaniel Jr.’s awesome spelling skills, he became a hero to his whole family.

    Isn’t that cool?  This is why it is so important to keep your spelling skills sharp, you never know when you may be in a situation where knowing how to spell could save you from a very dangerous situation.  So let’s cheer for Nathaniel Jr. and make sure we are learning to spell to the best of our abilities.  Join us spelling monsters, as we practice our spelling with cool, fun games.
