There was a time when education was not given any importance what-so-ever. Then, people presumed that education was to be learned at home alone. After that, people realized that educational institutions were essential for good quality learning.

Nowadays, people realize that education cannot be restricted to a single entity or organization. Rather, home schooling is equally important. Learning 2nd grade spelling words in the comforts of your house is a lot different from learning things at school.

Parents often make the mistake of thinking that home schooling that involves lessons on 2nd grade spelling will not be very difficult.

I recommend using the "Finding Out" series by David Paul to teach phonics to your students or children. Then give them spelling tests like this (below) based on the vocabulary in the Finding Out series, or your own word lists based on the phonics they have already learned.
