Guest kovthome Posted February 29, 2012 Share Posted February 29, 2012 Hi, I am struggling with my 5th grade ds and spelling. We have tried copywork, Explode the Code, A Reason for Spelling, All About Spelling, Sequential Spelling, Megawords, and Spelling Power (not all this year of course). I am trying what I feel like must be our last hope How to Teach Spelling. I so desperately want him to be able to spell and not feel bad about himself because of his difficulty with it. He still seems to struggle with sight words that he learned years ago for example there, where, was, were, said.... plus vowel team words and multi syllable words he has a hard time with. I need this to work for him. Well my question is for those who have used the program should I get the phonics drill cards? I do not mind spending the money. There seems to be two sets at Christian book.com and I am wondering if the bigger set is referenced in HTTS or just the smaller set. Also, did you have your child set up a spelling notebook along with doing the workbook? I am thinking I should have my ds do this. I am planning on starting him in workbook 1. I know this is going to be a lot of review which he should move through quickly but there are words in workbook 1 that I know he can not spell. Is this the correct thing to do? Any other advice or direction would be much appreciated. Thank you for your help, Kelly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
