    As a teacher, I wouldn't correct "mom" or "mum" in a spelling book, as they are actually titles/names. if you are doing a spelling list including the word "mum," the girl should spell it "mum" as that is the word you are using. If the spelling word was "mom," you'd expect her to spell it mom. But as far as using it in a paragraph in a spelling book, I wouldn't correct it anyway, it's a "name" in that regard.
