A unique spelling program that brings back spelling rules/phonics and includes teacher-recommended words (the ones students hear, write, and read in school)! Your 8th or 9th grade students will practice their spelling words by writing varied types of sentences that include homonyms, synonyms, proper nouns, antonyms, possessives, a/an, compound sentences, dates, quotations, contractions, titles, and more.
Program automatically differentiates for each student. How? Students create their own sentences. In this way, all academic levels are accommodated. All students practice the same skills each while doing the work at their own level.
In this purchase you will get a program you can use year after year.
