Can we talk about spelling?


Recommended Posts

I thought that my dd is a natural speller and have done very little spelling work with her. We talk about spelling rules when we come across them in other work. When we do a spelling test, she generally gets them all correct. However, when she writes for herself--reports, invitations--she has lots of spelling errors. She makes mistakes on words that she should know. I think that some of it is laziness, but I wonder if I need to do more teaching.


Any suggestions? Would the Calvert Spelling CD be of any help here? I've heard both good and bad reviews on that program for "natural" spellers.
