day 72: does winnie the pooh like to wander or wonder?

Another quick tip for you!
  1. Wonder is spelled like ponder—and they both mean to think
  2. Wander is spelled like land—and you wANDer all over the lAND (or wAnder has an A in it and Area has an A in it—and you wAnder in an Area)
So…does Winnie the Pooh like to wander or wonder?
  1. Pooh: “I’d rather be wondering.” OR
  2. Pooh: “I’d rather be wandering.”
Well, I’ll give you a little hint. My daughter was a thinker—always thinking and/or reading---as a child (and still is!). When she had to do something she didn’t want to do—or her thoughts were interrupted by something, she would say, “I’m just like Winnie the Pooh. I’d rather be wondering!” In other words, she, just like Pooh Bear, would rather be pondering/thinking! J
