Five year old orthography

I think one of my favourite things about kids, when they've only been at school a little while, is that wonderful phonetic spelling they do. Having been sent home all Anna's p1 work (that's all the stuff done between 4.5 years and 5.5 years old) last Weds, I've been wading through it for little gems to keep for her when she grows up. Isn't this cute? I like 'leevs' on the forest floor, 'predators wanting to eat diners' is an amusing slip and 'evry wair' is a particular favourite. But given she's already mastered 'enormous' and the likes, I don't think it'll be long before Anna grows out of this first, very cute stage.
