There are tons of games you can play to help him practice. Maybe if you presented it that way he might like it. If he likes to color, try rainbow spelling. He picks a color and writes a word. Then he picks a new color and traces around each letter. If you can get him to say the letters aloud as he traces them it helps memorize the word. Keep adding new colors until he has a rainbow word.
Another thing to keep in mind is that he could be bored or frustrated. If he's doing well, it might not be necessary to work so much at home. You could look into some more advanced skills to work on. If he's struggling, he might not want to do it because he's frustrated. Check with his teacher for some remediation skills you can work on. Kids love the feeling of success. If the stuff you're working on at home is too hard he will fight tooth and nail to get out of it.

For spelling try the website www.spellingcity.com You actually put your child's spelling words in, and there are games and practice activities. He may like it this way for say 15 min,. and then paper and pencil activities would not be such a challenge. As for the other stuff, you just have to follow through and make it known to him that homework is not a choice. I know it is hard, but try a visible chart that gives a reward after say 5 days of no problems. A trip to the library, park, or picking a movie might be good rewards. I hope it gets better.
