Reading and Spelling with Phonics

Reading and Spelling with Phonics

Reading and Spelling with Phonics is a highly effective yet simple phonics approach which combines reading, writing and spelling. Children learn all their phonograms in relationship to words and begin to read simple words on the first day of instruction. The teacherís manual explains step by step how to present each phonogram and clearly states spelling rules as children use them in the grade-level spelling lists. The kit includes: the teacherís manual with the phonics instruction and 4000 spelling words for grades 1-6, 70 phonogram flashcards (printed in italic handwriting with a and g duplicated in regular type), a 70-page First Grade Reading and Spelling Notebook, two 35-page practice writing tablets and a laminated quick reference card of spelling and pronunciation rules.

We recommend using the Italic Handwriting Series from Portland State University with the phonics program. Children should go through Book A (or another beginning penmanship book) before beginning their phonics instruction. Then they can use Book B in first grade with the phonics course, Book C in second grade, Book D in third grade and so on.

Spelling and Usage

Spelling and Usage

The 32 weekly lessons in this 150-page student workbook provide vocabulary, spelling and word usage studies for children in grades 7 through 12. This flexible program allows parents to choose words for vocabulary study and target their childís most frequently misspelled words. Students practice spelling rules for adding suffixes, ie and ei words, words ending in -ible and -able and so on. Several lessons present often misused words such as counsel and council, advice and advise, and biennial and biannual. Teaching suggestions are given at the beginning of the book, and an answer key is provided at the back of the book.
