I also like HWT for handwriting. We're using sequential spelling, but I have a natural speller, and I don't have to do standardized testing. It's not a leveled curriculum, so there are some things he can spell on a high school level, and others that he still spells at an elementary level. It teaches spelling by family (like a series of "oat" words... oat, boat, goat, float, floating, floatation, etc.).
Explode the Code is great for phonics and spelling IMO. I think you've already done that one though, right? (Sorry... it's midnight... my mind's a blur, and I'm waiting on laundry to finish.)
Thanks to tasha_mae for my siggy!
