Needing more spelling curriculum and a question about time4learning.
Spelling first: We have almost finished the HOP Spelling. I need another spelling curriculum for my 1st grader. I feel like HOP has equipped him with the spelling rules but not actually with spelling individual words- although he can spell many words. So what do you guys use for spelling?
Second: I am considering using time4learning.com as a supplemental tool. I was wondering if it is actually possible to use it this way. I want to be main teacher. I use text books, some online programs and a few dvd, cd programs and he is learning: spelling, reading/phonics, math, social studies, spanish, grammar, and science. He is doing very very well but I just feel like allowing him to paly with the time4learning might be nice also. He really loves ABCmouse.com but he's far too advanced for it now. I think that time4learning is very similar. However I"m not wanting it to be his main curriculum. Does anyone have any experience with this?
