As we are approaching middle school, I do have concerns that my 11-year-old son’s spelling is possibly not as it should be! I printed off the spelling bee words of the champions and about fell over! Of course, he could do most of the one bee for lower elementary, and a lot of the two bee. However, a lot of these words I had not even heard of. I could probably spell them, but if I had never heard of a word, how could I expect my 11 year old to be able to spell it! I had no idea how difficult some of these words would be!!
We had done spelling in our homeschool before, although to be fair, probably not for 2 years. But it was never consistent. When he would write a story and there were spelling mistakes I would of course talk to him about the correct spelling. But unlike all the core subjects, for some reason, we seemed to miss out on spelling.
To be fair, his spelling actually isn’t that bad. I mean it is “spelling bee” bad, but not normal 5th grade level bad!
So I decided to find the best spelling curriculum we could use in our homeschool. I found lots and lots for younger children. But was disappointed with what I could find for middle school and beyond.

Spelling Curriculum Homeschool- Middle School
We take a lot of live online classes in our homeschool, and we watch a lot of educational youtube channels, especially in history and science. So where I can I like to use workbooks. This is especially true for spelling. With autocorrect on the computer, spelling would be far too easy. We love these books and have a number of different ones. The Spectrum books and the 18 days, in particular, are two of our favorite workbooks.
If you are in the UK, these are the best spelling workbooks for KS3 on Amazon, and all are less than £10!
Amazon prime weekend is fast approaching, so add these to your cart, and hopefully, they will be even cheaper. Sometimes these workbooks are included, but not always. So it is definitely worth having a look now.
Which is your favorite spelling curriculum for the middle school years? Please let me know in the comments.
