Hi there! Does anyone have a good way to help a child with spelling? My son is in 2nd grade, but doesn't do very well in spelling. He already decides that he hates it and isn't good at it even before he tries. He can remember the 'rules' to phonics, etc. when he is doing his T4L lessons, and when I remind him during reading, but when it comes to spelling the words, everything he knows just flies out the window...or it seems. But really, he just doesn't want to do it. Any advice or 'fun' ways to helping him?
I wanted to thank you for suggesting the site Spellingcity.com. I had seen this site when my son was going to public school, but he played on it mostly by himself and I will say that I did not appreciate it until now! That is a GREAT site to help my son learn his words. We will have tons of fun with this. I appreciate your post so much!
Thank you so much for the suggestion! Great site!
I used spelling city before until I found another site call spellingtime.com it is also part of the Big IQ kids site very great site for help with spelling.
