Spelling City

 My husband and I have a friend that brags about being a 6 time spelling bee champion (he's pretty cocky about it....you know who you are, Thatcher). I definately was no spelling whiz, so when it comes to teaching my kids spelling, sometimes I feel a little inadequate. That is one of the reasons I like Spelling City so much.

Whether your kids homeschool or go to public school, it doesn't matter for this great site. If you haven't checked out spellingcity.com, you should! You enter the child's spelling words, name the list (ie. Reece unit 2), then they are able to practice their spelling words in fun games, and then take a spelling test. My kids play at least one game and take the test each day of the week, just for practice. The kids love it because they get to play games, and the best part is, IT'S FREE!

*I was not paid or reimbursed in any way for this post. I just really like this site and wanted to share it with other parents!

I would D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y consider outsourcing your spelling lessons to someone more qualified as you have good reason to feel inadequate.
