    More spelling questions`

    The deduction from daily work is a super idea. Do you give the kids a list of words they should know? Do you spend time on content based spelling? Where do you spend time on skills? Do you do individualized lists?

    Maybe I should search the archives.

    I was new to grade four last year (moving down from grade 8) and used the Scholastic speller. I was happy with the skills it covered but the homework and dictations were drudgery with too many not doing well.

    When I took a break and did content-based words, like the capital cities of the provinces or medieval times words the kids were much more motivated. I would like to work more along those lines this year.
