There were, however, three words with the letter p in them that he had written above the line so that the bottom of the p stem touched the line and the other letters were floating above it. Each letter p was circled in red and there was a “-1″ next to those words. His total score was 13/16 on a test where every word was spelled perfectly. The teacher wrote, “You are an amazing speller. I think next time you will not confuse p/P.”
I almost ripped up the test.
