My kids finished their DORAs awhile ago and I finally got a look at the reports. Apparently, weekly spelling lists and tests are not working for the boys. I've been seeing the problem coming for awhile now, but the tests really highlighted it. The boys are learning the words for the tests and then forget them totally. Many of the words that they missed on their tests were words that they had spelled correctly on their past spelling tests. Spelling was the lowest grade level on both of their tests, so it's time to shake things up.
So we are going to try Spelling U See next year.
Plus Cathy Duffy reviewed it, so anyone else interested....here's her review!
