Is spelling important in your homeschool? I know it sounds like a silly question, but you might be surprised to find that it’s a common question. Many homeschooling families don’t use a formal spelling curriculum, opting instead to practice and encourage spelling through other subjects, like reading and language arts.
In our homeschool, we have actually never used a formal program. That doesn’t mean that we don’t concentrate on spelling as a subject in and of itself. We have taken spelling lists by grade (we pull them from Time4Learning, our online curriculum), and have used those as weekly word lists. We also do a lot of spelling on the go, using VocabularySpellingCity’s mobile app.
What do you other homeschoolers out there do for spelling?
