Spelling woes

I gave the younger girls a spelling test that had a bunch of "oo" words.  Then I had M copy some of them onto index cards. 

In the process of this, G announces that something smells like dog poop. She's going on and on about this imaginary smell and repeatedly says that it smells like poo. 

I look at what M is writing... POO and I squeal "M!!  Why are you writing POO!?!?  That's not what you're supposed to be writing!"

And then she put the R on the end of her word.  

Oh, right. POOR was a spelling word. Duh
