The Scholastic Channel recently posed a challenge: Could a 6-year-old write a complete story from beginning to end? First grader Scotty, who specifies that he is indeed 6 years and three months old, was up to the task. With a little help from Scholastic, his adorable tale "The Nit Qast" (A.K.A. The Knight Quest) was brought to viral life.
Sorry, but this kid totally can not spell. No doubt he is a better than average speller for his age, and yes I know some six year olds can not even write. But I could spell much better than that in first grade and I have my old notebooks to prove it.
Surely they could find a child who could write a complete story AND spell a little better. Or, perhaps *sigh* not.
