Spelling | 70 Lists with 1,347 Words (Grades 3-7).

Spelling takes three times for a word to sink-in. The first round is exposure, then practice, and finally applying words in correct context. These independent lists are presented only in general sequence and do not build upon each other, so teachers should choose lists best suited for their class and grade level.

• Practice, supplement, enrich when those curriculum spelling lists are way too easy.

• Tested and refined in the classroom over 20 years.

• Match spelling lists to your class' needs year after year.
