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! So I needed to find the best homeschool spelling curriculum to help.
I am going to share with you our favorites.
At the end of the post, I have also shared a link to the spelling bee! I can not believe how difficult they are!

We take a lot of live online classes in our homeschool, and we watch a lot of kids educational videos, 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.
Best Homeschool Spelling Curriculum
These two spelling books are our absolute favorite spelling books, and we use a lot of their other curriculum too.
Middle School Spelling Curriculum
These other spelling workbooks also come highly recommended, or we have used their other subjects.
- Building Spelling Skills, Grade 6 from Evan Moor.
- Frequently Misspelled Words (6th grade to 8th grade): 400 Challenging Spelling Words (Spelling for Homeschoolers)
- Spelling Workout Level F
- Spelling Power
- Spelling Words for Year 7 – 2,000 words every student should know
- Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar for KS3 this is for UK spelling and not American.
- KS3 Spelling, Punctuation, and Grammar All-in-One Complete Revision and Practice this is a UK book and therefore will have UK spelling.
Black Friday 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.

Homeschool Spelling Bee
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!
