Starfall is one of my alltime favorite sites.  When DS was reviewing spelling last year, I would give him a paper to write out the spelling words 5x each night, by Fridays he had them down pat.

Interesting!

We bet pennies. For each word spelled correctly, she gets so many, for each one spelled wrong she pays me. This really gets her to focus and try to remember how to spell the words and not just half-ass it since she loves collecting her money :-)  She rarely has to pay!

hmmmm....interesting. Thanks for sharing. My daughter didn't have spelling words in Kindergarten. Not sure how it works yet for 1st grade, but will let you know after she starts school. Thanks for the info.

That's a good idea, kids learn faster when they are having fun.
