Are you looking for a FREE, quality spelling website that is completely hands-off for Mom and Dad for your spelling curriculum?
My kids have thoroughly enjoyed Gradespelling.com. I love it because they complete their spelling totally independent of me. There is never any grumbling when they go to do their spelling. Each lesson offers a wide variety of ways to practice the spelling list including Hang A Bot, Spelling Bee, Word Jumble and Word Search. Their absolute favorite is Hang A Bot! My kids work on two short, engaging and to-the-point activities per school day. The free website also offers vocabulary-building exercises.
Additionally, a premium version is offered. We find, however, the free version works great for us. The premium version does offer a free novel studies section for a variety of very popular books.
My daughter uses a Hewlett-Packard Chromebook that we purchased from Amazon for only $160 that works splendidly for her school work. At 11.6 inches, it is the perfect weight and size for her hands. She uses it for spelling, IXL, writing essays, research, YouTube, email and more.
Here were our curriculum choices last school year:
