Please bother about spelling. It is the very first thing kids learn at school. This influences their attitude to learning for the rest of their lives.  A teacher’s mission in life is to encourage curiosity and teach logical thinking.  Every curious kid deserves logical answers to questions about spelling. 

"Why doesn't bother rhyme with brother?" is a reasonable question. 

A teacher can answer this using my big book "Reading with Rules".  No prior knowledge needed.

You'll get an over-all look at spelling in my book "The Inside Story on English Spelling".  

Be a hero to your children and your students. Answer their questions. They deserve it.
