What do Granny Vee and Waldo have in common? Search games! Granny Vee calls them “Kooky Quests”!
Have you ever searched for Waldo in a picture book? He can be very hard to find! But I chanced upon him outside the State Capitol of Texas. (Do you know where the Capitol of Texas is? Answer below.)
“Waldo” tells the good news to people! You can read more of this good news here!
The answer to the question: The capitol building is in Austin. But the city of Austin is the capital of Texas. If you are speaking of the building, it is spelt* “capitol”. But the city is spelt “capital”.
Mnemonic: You may remember this as Austin is the capital with an “a”, but the old office building is spelt with an “o”!
mnemonic = something to aid in memory (don’t pronounce the “m” in this crazy word!)
“Spelt” or “spelled”: Either is correct. When I grew up, it was “spelt” and I think it sounds better, so I prefer it! But the more common way is “spelled”.
