Spelling Workout helps children progress their spelling ability in stages from simple sound/letter relationships to learning more complex word-structure patterns. The primary levels have a strong phonics base, while the upper grades shift toward study of word origins and vocabulary. Guided instruction is the key in the early levels while the upper levels use self-guided, independent study.
The Spelling Workout series will engage your child with crosscurricular reading passages that teach key spelling words. It provides spelling practice through riddles, puzzles, and interactive activities.
Spelling Workout utilizes a test-study method of teaching spelling. Your child will first take a pretest of words that have not been introduced. Then, under your direction, your child self-corrects the test, rewriting correctly any word that has been missed. Your child will study the words during practice exercises and then reassess
their spelling by taking a final test.
