Do you use a formal spelling curriculum, or do you just let them learn as they come across the words?
We will be using All About Spelling for first grade this year :) I'm very excited about it.
Formal program for us, also All About Spelling. I want my kids to be great spellers, not just rely on spell check. I want them to have a handle on some spelling rules and know their phonics.
All about spelling here too.
Words Their Way. Not so much a set out curriculum, but a way of teaching the rules and such. There are lists included.
We used Spelling Power but usually only once a year. We'd do the placement test for the level they were on and if they tested well they were done for the year.
We use All About Spelling.
