Worth the Price!
We have used this for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders in the last 2 years. All the kids changed their attitude about studying spelling. All the kids progressed with almost no input from ME. They did it willingly, EVERY day. The program emails me when the kids finish a lesson. They progress easily and quickly.
My 1st grader was not reading yet, but didn't want to be left out, so we signed him up. Within a week of spelling words on Spellingtime.com, he started reading. He finished the 1st grade lessons in about 18 weeks, and is now cruising along the 2nd grade level. He *loves* writing his words, and asked to study handwriting so he could print his spelling words more neatly.
The program works by having the computer read the spelling list, correct the child when he's wrong, do practice exercises, offer games when the child has worked for a while, and even asks the child to write the words on paper. Then the child is tested.
I have some of my kids in a charter school, and I loved that this program let me input the spelling list from school, so my child could practice her school spelling list. It may be more expensive than just purchasing a workbook, but the fact that my kids can do it without me is priceless. I hated calling out spelling words to my kids.
