Success In Spelling, Level 4

This program is designed to help children obtain successful spelling techniques. It has been said that good spellers are born. This is not true. It is true spelling comes easier for some than for others, and there is evidence that the primary function of the brain affects that process. However, good spellers are those who not only can memorize and remember how a word LOOKS, but also the rules which apply to spelling. 

Each level contains daily instructions, test sheets with the words listed for you, games, and a spelling success formula. Success in Spelling 4 suggested for grade 5.

Tricks of the Trade

When the author's daughter was having an inordinately hard time spelling, she evaluated different spelling programs, eventually creating her own How to Teach Any Child to Spell method. Focusing on how words sound, and then recognizing how those sounds look when written down comprises the main theme. Children are taught to pronounce correctly and make sure they're not confusing sound-alike letters like "i" and "e" or homophones. When they--or the teacher--finds misspelled words, they are to be categorized according to spelling error, in this notebook. Pre-organized according to phonetic structure (vowels, consonants, blended sounds) the student can learn what kinds of words give them the most trouble, and create a systematic study method. 87 pages, softcover, three-hole-punched.
