I'm often raving about All About Spelling and just wanted to include a picture of the tiles. Each lesson presents a new rule and before writing on paper, the kids practice pulling tiles down to create the word. We start out our lesson reviewing some old words before going on to the current lesson.
Some homeschoolers have a big board for this. Since we often sit on the floor, this small whiteboard has worked out well for us so far.
Oceans of First Grade Fun. Thanks Yolanda!
