I want my preschool daughter to be able to spell very well. I don't really care if she goes on that National Spelling Bee when she gets older however, I do want her to be able to spell like that even if she doesn' want to pursue a Bee.
What do you guys recommend me doing first. Phonics? Then root words in other languages. I am looking forward to learning along with her and would use the same ideas for my other children too.
I've googled and gooogled my heart out trying to find out what is the first steps those Spelling Bee kids did for their great spelling vocabulary , but I cant find anything. If they had a curriculum I would do that in a second. Any advice? Thanks.
