Alessandra Posted July 20, 2012 Share Posted July 20, 2012 (edited) Background -- dd is a great speller, so I will be including a spelling program because she loves to spell. I mean, learning to spell state capitals is dd's idea of fun, and she enjoys words like xylophone & xanthosis. My preference is for a spelling program that explains spelling rules -- dd has a great visual memory for individual, but needs help in seeing patterns. My first thought was Spelling Workout, because WTM recommends it. Looking at it, I see that there is a lot of writing, exercises, games, etc. I am concerned that some of these may be too time-consuming for dd, who has some learning issues. (Confession, I bought SW, but now I am not so sure about it.) So, I went to the Rod & Staff website and looked at their spelling program. It looks much more straightforward and sounds like it could be a better match. Any thoughts about spelling in general or specific programs? What works for your dc, especially if you have a kid who wants to spell? Edited July 20, 2012 by Alessandra Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
