Spell to Write and Read is a how-to book for the teacher with detailed lesson plans for each step along the way. It is not a day by day lesson plan book, but the Wise Guide for Spelling gives spelling words with sentences for the teacher to use if she wishes and detailed instructions on how to teach each word, including how to mark each word to show each of the five types of silent final E, reinforcement of important spelling rules, multi-letter phonogram, and "think to spell" ideas.
One feature I appreciate is the way I can adapt this program to suit my children's readiness for each step. Each year begins with a diagnostic test to determine where in the Wise Guide to Spelling to begin. Then you proceed at a pace of 10 to 40 words, depending on ability, with the program as written.
Wanda's program is very flexible and not every idea for enrichment activities is meant to be used each time you teach the particular spelling list, but since this is "spiral" learning the enrichment ideas are various methods to reinforce phonograms, spelling rules, "think to spell" concepts and grammatical rules over and over until they are truly ingrained in both teacher and student.
Just recently spelling "clicked" for my son after much struggle and he is overjoyed and confident that the words I dictate to him he can usually spell without much extra teaching on my part. Don't be lulled into thinking that every child will learn to spell well just from reading alone. Certain concepts need to be taught.Read more ›

With SWR, we learned the 70 basic phonogram sounds and the 28 spelling rules that changed his life. (One of the first things we learned was that English words don't end in 'v' and that is why 'have' must have an 'e'!) Four years later, my son is finishing high school with his eye on college. His reading comprehension has soared and his spelling has improved by leaps and bounds. He has already completed college courses like Firefighter I and II, and he is also a certified EMT. None of this would have been possible without SWR!
Thank you, Wanda, for opening the world up for this bright young man!

I am very, very impressed with this program.

I was looking for a spelling curriculum. This is more of a spelling assessment. It does not give enough actual lists once you level the students.Published on December 2, 2013 by Ashley S Cook
I received this book and immediately read it.
What a great resource. Must have Wise guide to Spelling to use this system of spelling.
