Spelling

We don't do spelling lessons. We don't have word lists. We don't have spelling quizzes. We're unschoolers, so we do things a little differently. We live our lives and, just like math, spelling happens. Princess sees words everywhere. She enters data into computer games and iPad games. She writes notes and stories. Spelling happens all the time.


A couple of years ago, Princess decided to participate in The Great American Spell Check, a fund raiser. The proceeds go to Village Home, our homeschool resource center and a place very dear to Princess. She has a list of words to spell and needs people to sponsor her. Sponsors can pledge a flat fee or pledge per word. The Lizard King and I have pledged a flat fee. Would you like to make a pledge? Princess would love it! And it would go to a good cause. You can leave a comment below or email me at shadylady @ maintcc . com. If you'd rather not make a pledge that's fine. Princess will take well wishes, too. :)

Thanks for your support!

  1. I can not make any pledges at this time but I can send tons of well wishes! I hope that she learns all her words and raises a bunch of money for her worthy cause. :)
