Inventive Spelling Freebie!

I love this!!!!! GREAT letter explaining "invented spelling" for parents. Often times parents want everything corrected and perfect and that's not what is best when learning. Invented spelling helps your child to communicate their thoughts on paper. It leads to better writers, which is a problem in schools today.
