Sing, Spell, Read and Write is a curriculum that I had the joy of being introduced to in the very beginning of our homeschooling adventure.

This year, we decided to add in more branches of language arts into our schooling. One of the things that I felt we were lacking was in vocabulary. I was thrilled to add in Wordly Wise 3000 (Second Edition), in which we are currently using Book 3. While I can only speak for Book 3, since it’s all we have used, hopefully readers might chime
