Our spelling lessons have taken on a very sleepy spell.
We haven't been doing spelling of late (but that's because i only have 10-15 minutes a day & there are so many other topics i want to cover).
The last spelling sonshine did was on the poem he learnt (yah, we are still at it).
I made him learn all the new words.
After that, i made him write the entire poem without me dictating it or spelling any words for him. At the same time, he practised his handwriting. Killing 2 birds with 1 stone i say!
