Signs of the Times

Today during one of my small groups, I was having students find sight words with a pointer on a pre-printed phonics mat that we use during this time. The word "we" is one of their sight words and I asked them all to find it. All of them did except for one boy who looked at me very puzzled.
I asked, "Can you not find it?"

He said, "No, it's not on here."

I said, "Yes, it is, look at the top row, it's right there (and pointed at the word)."

He said, "That's not how you spell spell it W-I-I."

At which point we had to have a brief lesson on the difference between the game console wii and the word we. Fun times.
