I only have a few suggestions, but here they are:
- Continue reading to your child. Yes, it’s still okay, especially if they still “let” you! 🙂
- Non-fiction really tends to pick up in these older ages. Study nonfiction text structures (see Non-fiction under Comprehension). Understanding the text structure will really help them organize the important information from a text.
These two supplement books are GREAT resources for working with spellers in this stage. They do still have a lot to learn about how words work:
Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Syllables and Affixes Spellers
Words Their Way: Word Sorts for Derivational Relations Spellers
