An old fashioned spelling test

I don’t know why this one is so popular in our house but it might be something to do with the fact that spelling tests don’t actually feature at my daughter’s school. For whatever reason the school have ‘opted out’ of old-fashioned spelling tests , (something to do with avoiding any sorts of feelings of failure I think) but they certainly go down well at our house. So after tea, my daughter is chomping at the bit to scribble down 1 to 10 and off we go. We’re only at ‘ come , some, can , said, look’ etc but I find its a great way to cement my daughter’s learning and its a great ‘slowie’ too.

Old fashioned learning = slow fashioned fun !
