We are using All About Spelling and really like it. Evelyn is a natural speller and is moving very quickly through each lesson but Reid is just starting and he loves that you can use magnet tiles to spell the word first and then write it down.
Evelyn has a harder time writing but she's been doing well with Handwriting Without Tears. She had her writing workbook that I expect neat and proper sentences and then a daily journal that I don't "correct" and she uses that for creative though. Slowly she has been improving her journal entries but she really enjoys it now and it was a huge struggle before to get her to write even a simple sentence. Sometimes she dictates to me, I write it and then she copies each line.
Out of all our school curriculum I had the hardest time deciding on a spelling/phonics program - you aren't alone!
