Spelling, Reading and a Puzzle

How can we make spelling practice less miserable?? I hate that there are tears when a word is spelled wrong. Jacob and I still have work to do to make spelling time better.

It doesn't help that his little sister thinks its fun to try to spell with her brother. She sits and writes random letters while Jacob is spelling. She smiles and laughs and asks what we are going to spell next.

Tonight spelling time was hard. But we recovered, after some tears, and we read together. Reading was fun tonight. I am so thankful for fun books.
And while we were going through our spelling and reading time, Logan started a puzzle. We all helped him finish...but he really did most of it. He didn't need us. I was just trying to speed it up; it was bedtime. However once the puzzle was complete, we had to shut off all the lights...becuase this puzzle glows in the dark.

We enjoyed looking at the fireworks and lights glowing. But seriously, a glow in the dark puzzle? Why? How often are you in the dark with your puzzle?
