Maddie had a test today at school on five words that she had to read, write and spell. She spelled all the words correctly but wrote them backwards! The teacher had written the list of words on a piece of paper and basically all Maddie had to do was copy them. So she did, just backwards, she even wrote the #'s 1-5 (for each word) on the right hand side of the paper. I have no idea why she is doing this, we practiced and practiced writing these words and not once did she write them backwards. She used to write her name backwards, but we finally got her to quit doing that. She often writes the letters d, b, and p backwards, she says she likes them better that way!
I don't know whether to worry about dyslexia or something at this stage, there is no history of dyslexia in mine or DH's family. She doesn't do this all the time, just some occasional words.
