I am looking for activities to do with DS1 (6) that help with spelling. I figured you homeschooling mamas would have some good ideas.

They need to be fun and not too much like school work. He is in school in a foreign language and so I want to work on English at home, but I don't want it to feel too much like homework. He currently spells at the 2nd grade level or so.

TIA

scrabble would be a very fun way to work on spelling. also, mad libs is a lot of fun and requires spelling. lastly, he could play games at www.spellingcity.com
