None of my children did well with the weekly "list and test" approach. For some folks, spelling just comes almost naturally. If your daughter is fortunate in that regard, having her do some daily writing or copy work (like making her own poem book or nature notebook, or keeping a journal) might be all you need to do. Scrabble is an excellent game for spelling (and vocabulary) practice, and there are lots of online resources as well. We also adapted "Mother May I" for spelling practice- they got to take a step forward for each word correctly given, and a word misspelled took them back to the beginning.
