Looking for opinions on Spelling


Recommended Posts

Hello all :-)


I am looking to make a change in spelling this year and am considering Natural Speller, Spelling Plus or Phonetic Zoo.

I would love to hear what anyone has to say about these three. I have three boys ages 6, 9 and 11.


Thank you so kindly for your thoughts!

We have had some experience with Phonetic Zoo and Natural Speller. Phonetic Zoo is great because it can be done independently but it would probably be a little too advanced for your ds6. There is a placement test on IEW's website. It is expensive if you get the CDs, which makes it independent, but it does resell very well. We own Natural Speller and if I hadn't started using and loving Writing Road to Reading then that is what I would probably use. It is nice that it is a resource that can be used for every grade.
