I think it would  be easier to remember that c comes before s in the alphabet and in the spelling of fuchsia.

Over the years, I have had too many students spell it “few-sha” than I can count… haha.

@brideatbeach: That’s too, cute!  Not to go completely off subject here, but a mutual friends son wrote a paper in 2nd grade about his summer.  He said that he went to a wedding with his mom and she whore a dress.  LOL!  So classic, I can see how he sounded that out (wore).

Oh, can I share my WB spelling pet peeves while we’re at it?

It’s AISLE, not ISLE, unless your’e referring to a small landmass surrounded by water.

If you’re tired, you’re WEARY. If you’re suspcious, concerned, hesitating, you’re WARY.

If you’re wearing them on you’re feet, they’re HEELS. if something is curing someone of a disease, it HEALS.

Ahem. Ok, stupid pet peeve vent over. 🙂

I had no idea – totally thought there was an ‘s’ in there.  Luckily I haven’t had to spell it much!

@Mrs.Firefly1: Haha I teach middle school, but I guess it can still be considered cute and not quite ignorant at that point. 😛 LOL

I have to enter here too. I have a spelling pet peeve, like major.  If something is indicating ownership, use “their” if it is indicating a place use “there”, like “over there”.  Oh, and another thing: APOSTROPHE!!!! Agh.  Use them properly!!! It’s used strictly for ownership “That’s Laura’s” or as a contraction “it’s” rather than “it is”.  Sixth grade.  Seriously.  ::rant over::

Slightly off topic, but I do know how to spell fuchsia correctly and that is because I own a DACHShund. Took me forever to remember the correct spelling of weiner dog, but they are both from the German background, so hey, it works!!!
