I belong to a lot of Facebook teaching groups and many have posted that their districts do not teach spelling. I didn’t investigate which states those teachers were in. I’d presume it wasn’t Texas as we have spelling standards. I teach spelling as well as print and cursive handwriting. I’ve had to teach many of my kids how to print their own name as they were writing all letters the same size. I’ve gotten most of them to write print correctly at this point of the year.
