mom2maddie Posted June 29, 2012 Share Posted June 29, 2012 I want to try a new spelling program with my 9 year old dd. She knows all the spelling rules and phonograms, but isn't really applying them in her writing. SWR moves too fast for her and I think it's overwhelming with the amount of rules presented in each lesson. We've been using SWR for the past four years and she hates spelling, finds it frustrating and misses almost half of the words on quizes and tests. Her younger brother on the other hand is a natural speller and does great with SWR. I think I've looked at every program out there, but I'm still not sure which one would work best for her. I think AAS or LOE will be too similar to SWR and maybe a different approach would be good...Spelling Power?? Perhaps I need to just stick with SWR and give her less words. I don't know, but I do know this year I want her to grow in her confidence and not to hate spelling. Thanks, Susan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
