Apples: Daily Spelling Drills for Secondary Students


If you have older, struggling students who are reading and spelling below their grade level, perhaps it's time for Phonics Intervention.This systematic program will put them on the road to reading success! Lorna Simmons, a former classroom and special education teacher, created the program when her oldest son was still having difficulty reading upon finishing second grade.
In keeping with the Saxon philosophy, this curriculum builds on prior learning, and presents information in small, carefully sequenced increments. Covering consonants, vowels, and reading comprehension, the program offers explicit, systematic strategies for decoding and spelling words. Consumable work sheets, speed drills, and vocabulary tests reinforce learning and provide daily reading opportunities. Students also learn dictionary skills through progressively difficult alphabetizing activities.
The teacher's manual includes all lessons, assessments, speed drills, word lists, and reduced versions of student materials. Kit includes a teacher's manual, student workbook, and classroom materials. Grades 4 and up.
