Last school year I stumbled on a great resource for spelling and phonics. YouTube. YouTube has tons of Electric Company videos that teach spelling patterns or rules. The catchy tunes really help cement some concepts. I put the videos on a couple times a month while my boys are eating lunch and have seen some carryover to my son’s spelling skills. Click here to view a playlist I have set up. It covers topics like -tion, silent e, n’t, and much more.
