Mama Learns to Spell

I had a memory about my mom today (born in 1924). When she was a small child in school, they didn’t study “Math”. They studied “Arithmetic”.

They didn’t have “notebooks” for school. They had “compositions.”

This is how she learned to spell “Arithmetic” and “Composition”.

“Arithmetic”:
A Rat In Tom’s House Might Eat Tom’s Ice Cream” 🙂

“Composition”:
Come On Mama, Pass On Sister, Ivy Told Ida On Nell” 🙂
