I have discovered an online spelling programme that may lessen the stress of spelling homework for both students and parents.
Your child has been given a list of words to be learnt as normal by Friday. However on the top of the each student's individual list is a grade and the unit of the words that a student is learning.
You may want your child to learn the words in a normal manner or go onto this link ( this link is also on the righthand side of the blog). The program is a self -directed learning for your student to learn their list of words.
Your child only has to click on the grade and the unit to find their spelling words. He/ She follows the instructions to help them reinforce the spelling of their list words, which is done by completing the online game.
Hopefully this will reduce some stress around spelling. I would appreciate that you still test your child once and sign their spelling words before Friday.
