Recently, I purchased Hooked on Spelling for Turbo to use in addition to reading practice. Since it was something he could use with the computer, I thought it would be a win/win situation.
Unfortunately, it doesn't move "as fast" as other games he plays on the computer...just perfect.
He is learning, and his spelling is getting better as he realizes word families, beginning and ending sounds, but the practice work is like pulling teeth for him to do!
Today, I had finally had it. He couldn't sit in the chair, he couldn't focus and stay on task. It was like we were catching rabbits all morning long! So we took to the window. In 10 minutes flat, he did an entire page of the practice work that would have taken us 45 minutes with pencil and paper.
I guess just changing a few things up and looking at things from a different perspective is all that it takes. I think we will be doing our spelling work on the window for a bit, huh?
