We're in the first half of the second grade curriculum for spelling. We started it last year and then kind of forgot about it because we felt we needed to concentrate on getting our science and reading done. Now we're making more of a concerted effort to make spelling a part of our week over the summer. The problem arises when Emperor frequently gets 100 percent on the pretest and other people like Elf and our guest summer homeschooler, G, don't do as well. I don't really have time to do three different curriculum texts, even if I did have unlimited cash. There are "climber" words each week, however, and that means two words they've missed in the past get studied each week. There are also journal exercises, dictionary work (put words in order, etc.) and other workbook pages included.
