Do you use a spelling curriculum? Our language arts curriculum comes with a spellinge part but it is basically useless. The words are too easy and I would like to focus less on memorization and more on learning a rule or pattern. The words in our curriculum are designed to match up with the basal reader that I don't use that much anyway. I prefer to do small literature circles with trade books. I was wondering if there is a spelling resource that someone would recommend. I wound up making up a lot of my own lists last year and I found it hard to figure out what words were best and time consuming. I'll be teaching second grade next year if that helps.
