    “Extemporaneous” is a big word for a little boy.

    So is the excuse itself, for that matter.

    Now, if he’d had an ebook back then, the letters crashing off the screen might be a reasonable excuse.

    I too have observed that when I try to read something uninteresting the characters just fall off the page in a heap of gibberish!

    Next time, sweep the pile of letters into a trash bag so you can dump ’em on her desk and let HER figure them out.

    Doesn’t that teacher realize that he’s telling the truth!
    deslyx… lixyd… Dyslexia is a real learning disorder.

    Okay, that’s probably not Calvin’s problem, but…

    He can’t pass history but he knows the word “extemporaneous”?

    Did you post that with little or no preparation or forethought?

    he’s good with words, but not much else [like history, math].
    an idiot savant???

    dyslexic kids are actually often quite clever with words – they just have problems reading them. The “letters fall from the page” are actually a dyslexia symptom as Nebulous speaks of above. Might have something to do with Calvin’s aversion to studying. – then again he might just be lazy :þ

    She could have, at least, appreciated his originality on the excuse.
