Which one do you use or recommend??
My kids (DS6, DD5) can read quite well and they have also learnt to write really well using Handwriting without Tears. But when they try to spell out a new word they are having trouble as they haven't learnt all the phonic/spelling rules.
Explode the code: Looks really good and has bits they can colour in which makes it a bit more interesting for the child.
All about spelling: Seems really parent orientated and more manipulatives are used. Minimal worksheets.
Spalding: Looks way too hard and I couldn't find any samples of their student workbooks etc, only teacher content pages.
I'd be very interested in everyone's opinion as I would like to get the kids started on a phonic based program before their reading accelerates.
P.S. We used Reading Eggs to teach the kids how to read initially.
