Reading if for Everyone is a complete phonics product sold elsewhere on Currclick. This product, Spelling is for Everyone, is meant to be an add-on to that product BUT it can stand alone as well.
Spelling is for Everyone offers 18 weeks of spelling lists that use the special picture clues from the Reading is for Everyone Curriculum. The special picture clues are at the top of each week's spelling list.
Here's the suggested weekly schedule:
Monday – Give students the list for the week. Go over the special sounds located at the top of each spelling list. Have your child just read the words to you today.
Tuesday - Study (use Spelling City, Word Safari or another computer program or game)
Wednesday – Write the words 3 times each
Thursday – Study (Give a Practice Test…study only the ones you miss…you may even choose only to test your child on those missed on Friday.)
Friday – Spelling Test
Just like Reading is for Everyone and Math is for Everyone, this product was also written specifically for new or struggling learners. It utilizes a "right-brain" approach and incorporates picture clues within the learning for long-term retention of new concepts.
