I teach 5th. We switched from spelling to vocabulary instruction two years ago. I actually switched back to spelling (words their way) because my current class is so terrible at spelling and don't have the spelling patterns down at all.

I think for me, it really depends on how well spelling, phonics, and phonemic awareness is taught in the younger grades. Do they have the general spelling patterns down? Is their spelling correct on most common sight words? Can they apply spelling patterns to new words?
