RootAnn Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 I thought Megawords sounded great. My plan was to have oldest dd go through all eight books (eventually). It is early to say this, but I'm just not feeling the Megawords love. It isn't what I thought it would be. I am need a *lot* more than I thought I would be (almost 100% vs. my ideal 50%). DD passed out of the reading sections in Megawords 1 - although I'm having her do the passage reading (so far avg 150 WCPM w/1 or 2 errors) and completely out of 3 of the 8 sections in spelling. (She got 4/5 right on the rest on the "check test.") I thought she needed work on syllabification, so we've spent more time in Sections 1 & 2 than the check test said we needed to, but I don't think it is going to translate into actual spelling improvements. The exercises don't seem very helpful. (Perhaps because she already has these things down??) So, assuming we finish Megawords 1, what *other* mostly spelling program should I try if I'm looking for something - relatively inexpensive - open & go - somewhat independent (should need me 50% of the time or less) - rule based This one still needs a spelling program still. I just don't think I can handle doing teacher-intensive SWR with *another* kid. I need something *more independent.* Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
