What spelling curriculum is available for homeschooling?
I just started homeschooling today which is 3/31/08 and I need some spelling cirrculum and can't seem to find any free printables can you help with some ideas? and also any advice for just starting homeschooling? we are homeschooling year around.my 3 sons are 11,7,7 so that would be 1st and 5th grade.
This is my first year homeschooling. I don't know where to find a free spelling printables. I use books from barnes and nobles. they are harcourt books about six dollars a workbook or somtimes you can get a whole grade(spelling,reading,english,writing,and test prep) in one for about 20 dollars.
barnes and nobles also give the teachers discount to homescooling parents.
I use SpellingTime for my dd. I also tried spellingcity but it's not a full program and you can't use the keyboard which was important to me. SpellingTime is AWESOME and my dd now loves doing her dreaded spelling lessons, but there is a fee. I quess you get what you pay for! :)
We use Abeka. However, this curriculum is rather advanced compared to most. Another great curriculum is Christian Light Publications. Check out their link below. I like this option because it combines all three subjects into a simple lesson (English, Spelling, and Handwriting). http://www.clp.org/
