Spelling….. the ability to do so well doesn’t seem to be genetic in our family! My husband and I are both creative spellers and it seems our kids have followed suit. ( <3 Google! the best spell checker in the world! LOL ) Today I went searching for an online spelling program for my daughter (6th grader) who is spelling challenged. I found a great option! http://www.spellingcity.com/
Here is what the home page looks like. It’s free to join but there is an option for a premium membership (right now it’s $24.99 for a family membership. FYI, the price is going up Jan. 10th, 2012) I just spent about an hour adding lists for Mikah. She now has 13 weeks set up to review (i.e. learn to spell) the 200 most misspelled words in English. You can use my list – just do a search for goalongs user name 🙂
The student can play games and then take their spelling test online (well worth the 5 minutes it takes to enter the list!) The audio is nice and clear. Then the test is graded for you! Just look at all your options….
So, you really need to check this site out. It will be worth your time.
Also, right now Teaching… My Calling is having a giveaway for a free annual membership! Check them out and let them know I sent you!
