Mama2four Posted September 8, 2012 Share Posted September 8, 2012 My 13 yo son has always, always struggled with spelling. I mostly taught him to read with Phonics Pathways, and only used SWR and now AAS for spelling. He is on level 2 AAS step 6. I've done everything as instructed, segmenting sounds, open & closed syllables, finger spelling. Here is how he spelled bonus: bouns. He spelled depend as dpent. He knows what vowels are and every syllable has at least one vowel. He can tell me how many syllables a word has most of the time. When he was younger, he had a difficult time with rhyming, and he didn't become a good reader until about a year ago. He wants to rush through his work, and he doesn't like to listen to me dictate the words SWR style, but he doesn't want to use the AAS tiles either. Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
