Those seem about right to me, but I don't have kids....just lots of cousins, a couple siblings and nearly a decade of various childcare activities (babysitting, swimming lessons, childcare and lessons for kids with special needs). If you want my advice (if you don't, disregard this response, lol), you could help your daughter to learn the words more quickly by making the spelling list part of your daily vocabulary. I.e. make a contest to see who can correctly use the words the most times that day. Perhaps the person who wins will get to pick what you'll have for dinner the next day or something. Involve your other children (if you have any). Also, if she enjoys writing, help her to write a story using these words, or have her write a letter to a relative (that will write back, snail mail is very exciting at 6ish). Using different coloured markers or pencil crayons will make this more fun. Offer lots of praise for good tries (when she spells them wrong) and have her correct her own mistakes (i.e. don't just write it correctly above her try, have her write it). This method helped me learn to spell. Plus, any time spent together will improve her reading/writing skills much more quickly than her writing the words over and over it herself (which I'm sure you already know). The key is positive reinforcement. Good luck, and I'm sure you'll have quite the little literary genius on your hands before long.
