Contextual exercises for spelling

    Can anybody recommend books with contextual exercises that support spelling? Rather than the copy, cover, check approach?

    This is to support my daughter in year 5. I am a post-16 language and interpreting teacher, so not a primary specialist.

    We have started to get the dreaded spelling lists from school just to « practice » them by copying, which does not really work for us as we learn better when in context really.

    I do know I could be devising my own exercises and texts every week, but I am time-poor!

    Hi, thanks. I guess I am looking for books with exercises, reading, writing, etc that reinforce spelling rather than rota memorization tricks.
