Spell to Write and Read Core Kit

This core kit includes everything you need for Wanda Sanseri's "Spell to Write and Read" curriculum. The five components work together for a unified language arts program for ages 4-6, or as remedial/reinforcement work for any age. 

Based on the principles of internalizing (spelling), recognizing (reading), composing (writing) and comprehending (understanding) words, The Spell to Write and Read book uses logical progression and multi-sensory instruction to help children learn to spell. Seventy phonograms and twenty-eight spelling rules are the basis for everything else learned, and are presented in a positive manner instead of filled with exceptions to the rules. Each lesson is filled with historical and spelling notes on each concept, as well as examples, demonstrations, and activities for each new rule or phonic. This overall teacher's manual replaces Teaching Reading at Home & School as the companion to the spelling list in Wise Guide for Spelling.

The WISE Guide for Spelling contains over 2000 core words plus derivatives, divided into lots of twenty that are organized by spelling difficulty. Preliminary warm up activities and teasers, example sentences, spelling rules, and enrichments are included for each lesson. Students are to build their "own textbook", with this guide overseeing the process; lists refer back to the phonogram rules and steps in Spell to Write and Read to help provide context in teaching. 

A set of 70 basic phonogram cards are provided, as well as a phonogram CD to assure proper pronunciation. The front of each card has a phonogram typed in lower case, while the back gives information, including handwriting helps. A set of small spelling rule cards includes two sided cards; a graphic on the front illustrates the spelling rule, while the back contains the actual rule, example words, and additional valuable information. Based on the 28 rules in the program.
