Rather than going through the book and having my child read each word, I am reading the words out loud to him, and he uses either letter tiles or a chalkboard slate to spell them. It's been vastly more effective than memorizing spelling lists for him, and he is beginning to spell words correctly (and independently) for the first time when he is doing other writing activities throughout the school day. That, in itself, is priceless.
We could have printed this book, or used an online resource, but I am a little bit old-fashioned. I like having physical, professionally bound books in my classroom whenever possible. The binding is not terribly robust, and I have some concern that it may break down over time (as paperback books often do). But I think that it will be sufficient for our purposes. It was the exact book that I was looking for, and I didn't have to look through used or out-of-print books to find it. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a struggling reader or speller. I have looked at dozens of public domain "spellers", and this one is by far my favorite.
by the way...if you don't have the finances to buy it, you can download a free copy to your computer to print or just use from the computer. [...]
