There are many resources you can obtain for easy teaching and review of the Dolch words. Site word flash cards are always a great way to reinforce these words, as well as to make learning or reviewing them fun. You can purchase a set, like the set listed below, or create a set using index cards. You can also elicit your homeschooler to help you to create a set of flashcards, as they can assist in writing the words or drawing the pictures. Zoodle also makes an entertaining dvd for lists one and two, which your elementary homeschooler will love.
