Momoftwocut... asks:

My 2nd grade daughter reads almost constantly.  She reads on a 4th grade reading level, yet she struggles with spelling.  How could this be possible?

She has great comprehension, so I know she understands what she reads.  I am baffled as to what could result in her having so much difficulty with spelling.  It is beginning to frustrate her and I don't want to see her lose confidence in her abilities.

You sound worried about your daughter's skill at spelling. Considering that she is reading above grade level and enjoys reading so much, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Work with her by using flash cards or a spelling game. She will catch on!
