    Default Newbie spelling question

    Hi! This is my first year homeschooling and I have 2 girls, a 1st grader and a 3rd grader I'm wondering what to do about spelling...I have printed the words out for their grade levels and I'm just lost on which words to have them study and when. Do they somehow match up with the lessons in the LA and LA Extensions? Or, do I just choose whatever?
    Thanks!

    You can assign the words randomly. We like to use Spelling City for our spelling lists.

    Here are lists for T4L on the Spelling City site. There are several lists for 3rd grade. You might want to look the others over to see if any fit your 1st grader, otherwise you can just enter the 1st grade lists yourself.

    THANK YOU! I was making up my own lists, pulling them at random from the master list and trying to match them up to lessons. Spellng City will make it much easier in planning for my 2nd grader.

    Thanks again,
