How important is a spelling curriculum in your opinion? I'm torn on this. I really don't want to have one, but don't want them to become poor spellers like my husband and brother either. My 2nd grader (in a private school currently), has spelling every week and still spells everything wrong anyway lol so what's the point!!! I think I'd much rather combine it or deal with correcting spelling as it arises, but then again maybe we should do spelling to have the practice. What's your opinion? Especially if you have older children, I'd love to know if you think spelling in the younger grades is important. Thanks all!
