my wonderful teacher friend introduced ari and i to spelling city. i don't know anything more boring than studying spelling words, but that is no longer a problem at our house! spelling city dot com takes your unique spelling list and creates games, puzzles, drills, and even an oral test with the words your child needs to learn. there is a premium membership, but we don't find that necessary and all the practice we're looking for is FREE!
ari gets on the site for 10-15 minutes a day playing games and testing himself. he loves it and it gets me off the hook for those dreaded "practice tests" :) if you have elementary aged kids...you spell your feelings as... T-H-A-N-K-S!
