I used to hate doing spelling and vocabulary with my children. It was crazy 5 children at different spelling levels. Who in their right mind could handle doing 5 spelling lists with 5 spelling tests every Friday? I know that I sure couldn't, it was really driving me nuts! I went back and forth for a year or two on what to do to tame that terrible paper tiger. I finally ran across Vocabulary and Spelling City.com if you haven't looked at this website, you need to check it out now. It has absolutely revolutionized how our family does spelling.
Let me tell you, it is a lifesaver for me. This site not only allows me to enter whatever spelling lists by grade I want for my child, but also has hundreds of other lists for me to choose from. On top of that, it allows my children to practice these lists with really awesome games, and then when it is time to test - they take their tests right there on the website - AND (here is the kicker) it even scores it for them. All I have to do is check out their records, and print out a grade report. No hassle - no headache - spelling is now under control!
