    Hi
    I'm looking for some help in structuring English lessons for my kids. They were in the first quarter of Reception and Year 2 when we left the UK over a year ago, and apart from keeping up with reading, they have done nothing further in English as both are in local school/childcare and learning German.

    I would like to keep them on track with spelling/grammar/comprehension/writing skills but not sure how to go about it so that there are not too many gaps. Although my nearly 6 year old can read chapter books, she has no idea of how to spell words and usually spells them incorrectly. I have heard of Tic Tac Toe as a great resource. I try BBC online games and some workbooks , but I feel I am missing the core structure. I am a trained English teacher with most experience in adult EFL , but not used to teaching kids and basic literacy from scratch ( think Phonics revision will be necessary!).

    Any help at all! The homeschool sites I have come across are not as organized as I'd like and often rather bible based.

    Reading English books is the most invaluable resource for learning to write/spell/grammar comprehension!

    So, if others can advise on the structure you require - then ensure as much fun story reading as possible.

    You might try your luck on the International forum. Also, there are tons of packaged homeschooling programs out there - more from the US than from the UK, but a Google search should throw up many results.

    Good luck with it.
