Spelling fun… for fifth grade

Fifth graders are not too old to still have a great time while doing their spelling work. My daddy always told me – that spelling was the easiest subject because I already had all the answers. I just had to study them…

This was awesome advice, spelling is a foundational subject that should bring together the other subjects like writing, reading, grammar, and even science and history. If we can spell well, we will also have a greater comprehension rate. But how can we get our non-spellers to become great spellers? That is easy, find them a way to have fun while they are learning spelling and vocabulary. My kids love to do their spelling word lists since we have found an online spelling site curriculum that helps us have fun and keep track of their achievement. It has made all the difference in my children’s desire to learn spelling. Fun = motivation!
