In order to be a proficient speller a student needs many strategies to spell, not just memorization. This program addresses developing many strategies.
Students learn and retain words better when they can see patterns in words and by the end of first grade the average first grader should be able to correctly spell at least 100 frequently used words (Fountas and Pinnell 1998).
Most frequently used words do not follow common spelling rules or patterns and need to be memorized. Due to the fact that almost 500 primary grade words are made up of only 37 rimes and 286 rimes are pronounced the same way 96% of the time in primary grade text it is an effective way to teach students to read and spell.
By combining these 2 strategies students will become more proficient readers and spellers.
