When Should I Start Teaching Spelling in Homeschool?
Spelling is more than just associating letters with sounds and deciphering them. Spelling is an essential element to writing clearly and convincingly. Some programs start testing children right away like at Kindergarten level. However, instead of teaching spelling, a program may add the element of testing. Teaching spelling is one thing and testing spelling is quite another thing.
