Being a “minimalist” when it comes to curriculum, I was not really interested in buying some big spelling curriculum, as great as some of them are. I was really excited when I ran across the public domain Webster’s Speller online. You can not only use it for spelling, but phonics, handwriting and vocabulary as well. Here’s a thorough look at ways to use Webster’s Speller. We combine handwriting practice and spelling, so I read the words aloud and my son writes them. Sometimes we switch things up and use the letter tiles from the Bananagrams game to spell with.
Also, for practicing spelling words, there’s no better site than Spelling City.
