Homeschool Spelling Programs
The M family
Sonlighters from
Salem, OR


Spelling is built in if you are using Sonlight Language Arts with History / Bible / Literature programs A-C. Beginning with Level 1, each week’s spelling list coincides with the phonetic patterns being taught.

For Language Arts D - F, read over the descriptions below, then pick a brand. You likely need only one brand for your family.

Don't be overwhelmed. Either brand below is a good option that has helped thousands of students learn how to spell. (And if you ask a group of homeschooling moms which is the best, you'll probably find some advocates and some detractors for each, which isn't necessarily helpful for making a confident purchase.)

So read the descriptions. Which appeals to you the most? Choose that. And if, at some point, you decide it doesn't work well for your family, pick the other one.

All About Spelling

All About Spelling brings together the three pathways to learning: hearing, seeing, and touching. This multisensory approach, combined with a built-in review system and reinforcement activities, ensures students retain and apply what they learn.

If you are just beginning to teach your children spelling, want a program that appeals to a variety of learning styles, or if your children need remedial help, this customizable program could be an excellent fit. Step-by-step lessons (mastery-based, not grade-level based) build on one another in a sequence that has been carefully tested to produce long-term results.

Spelling You See

Spelling need not be difficult and frustrating. Rather than use tests and long spelling lists, Spelling You See takes a different approach. No spelling tests. No word lists. No flashcards. The developmental process of spelling is similar to what children go through when learning to walk. They need to develop the prerequisite skill of crawling before they can move on to walking and then running. In the same way, this program guides your student through the stages in the process of learning to spell.
