A trusted name in spelling and language arts for over 36 years, Sequential Spelling teaches students to recognize patterns of spelling rather than memorize thematically related lists of words. As students recognize more and more patterns, their spelling skills and confidence soar! Each daily spelling lesson is a test on the day's word list. The lists are based on word families and word difficulty; NOT themed lists of words. By building from the easier words of a family to important power words, the program builds self-confidence. Students learn phonologically as they write each word being tested. Because they have learned the sounds and the spelling of each word family being taught, the students can spell each word in the word list at the end of the lesson. Every learning channel (auditory, visual, kinesthetic) is employed with this program. With this "See it, Say it Spell it!" approach to teaching spelling, students hear the word, then hear it in the context of a sentence. They then SEE it when the corrected word is shown by the teacher and they write it in their Workbook. They SAY the word after the teacher says it and before long, they can SPELL with ease. The logic and simplicity of Sequential Spelling make it an effective tool for teaching students with learning challenges- even when other programs haven't worked. Sequential Spelling is a seven-level spelling program for the teaching of the patterns of English spelling within seven normal public school years, though many homeschoolers complete all seven levels at a much faster rate. Each of the 7 levels has 180 daily tests of 25 words.
