RnR Spelling 1.3.22
RnR Spelling spelling program is based on the Look-Cover-Write-Check method of learning spellings used in many primary and secondary schools. This is a long established and proven method of learning to spell words accurately. Most children, whilst learning to read and write at primary school, are regularly given word lists to learn. RnR Spelling makes it easy for your child to practice learning these words, with a few minutes of regular practice using the Look-Cover-Write-Check method that is the basis for the program. Unlike other spelling programs, the word lists are completely customizable so that they can always match what your child is required to do for school.

Two of the best books on home-schooling:
Speed Your Read
This is speed reading software, supposedly the best: http://snipurl.com/speedyourread
Intelligent Memory: Improve the Memory that Makes You Smarter: http://snipurl.com/memory-improvement
Here are speed reading tips from Trent Ogren:
1. Always use your finger or the end of a pen to guide your eyes by pointing it under the words you are reading. (This really helps to make you conscious of the speed at which you are reading, which is surprisingly important.)
2. Every day, read something you chose for 10 minutes at your normal speed and mark where you started and finished. Then try reading that exact same passage in 5 minutes. (This will help you get used to reading faster than you would normally be comfortable with.)
Please forgive me for insulting you Beth. I hope this helps you with home schooling.
