Kids usually approach spelling as the necessary evil of their school curriculum, probably because they get no satisfaction from us moms and teachers cramming a list of 10 or 20 words down their throats every week in search of that perfect score. Spelling should not be a drudgery. It should be fun, relaxing, and even hip. Words are so cool...they make up our language. They allow us to communicate with each other and to express ourselves. They allow us to to be free and help us to share a piece of ourselves with others. What students need to get is that without words, they are not connected with all the world has to offer. And worse, they will be seen as uneducated if they grow up to be poor spellers. Bottom line is that they need to learn how to spell whether they like it or not! Philip Trocki has developed a superb series of workbooks based on a sport theme format that kids can relate to. Now that doesn't mean that they will like it. You can't force a kid to like spelling, but at least you can make it tolerable, and that's exactly what this workbook does! By the way, I would highly recommend starting this or any other formal spelling program AFTER the basics of phonics are learned and established.
In this series, each lesson is covered over a 5-day period.Read more ›
I like this book very much and have purchased Levels B to H as well.
I'm using them as part of our homeschooling curriculum.
we will continue to use this program.
