I thought their new album was pretty good too. Not bad for some old farts. Here's one...

I was talking to the dog, I said, "You going in Or out".then I said ,"yeah whatever Dog",while he gave me look. Then I realized that was
80's talk, and started giggling.
Then I found five dollars !

Did not want to derail the weather thread so I will post this here. QV mentioned his son has his first spelling test today. It reminded me of what I did to help my kids prepare for their tests. I bought one of these doohickeys. Pretty cool.this exact one might not still be available but I am sure another newer model would suffice. I would load my kids spelling words for the week in it and it would be a great study tool that you could take any where. It even has games in it to help make studying fun. It is sitting in front of me on the desk right now. I will never get rid of it. Good memories.

Mark, that is good they make kid friendly versions of those. I have an adult version (electronic dictionary) I've used in the past and it's just sitting in a drawer, so thanks for the reminder that I have the electronic dictionary. Now I just use the computer so never think to pull it out.

Here's the website our school uses for spelling, including their tests: www.spellingcity.com I think there's some good games fro practice on there - as long as the kids have fun with it.

I think the reason my kids spell well is they've read hundreds of books, including longer books. That's the best practice, IMHO. I put in a lot of time reading with them when they were little, I loved that. Course they haven't let me read to them in years, but the habit stuck for quite a while.

Thanks, Riggs. This looks like a fun site for kids. I think the various ways they have to learn the spelling the better.

iTrace (iPad app), allows me to enter specific words and then shows how to write them, so that will be useful as well, but it doesn't test them, so the above website will be great for that.

In looking through their website more closely, I see there is "an app for that". So that will be great as well. https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/id538407602?mt=8

I suspect with this new school, and a more academic approach there will be greater use of the iPad for our son. Currently he doesn't use ours' much, but I can see that changing.
