PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If teaching kids to spell sends shivers up your spine or makes your hair stand on end, you will WANT to read this book!
You will find practical ideas for teaching your own kids to spell. Not in the traditional way of drills, worksheets and Friday testing, but in meaningful, hands-on, and developmentally appropriate ways.

Debunking some of the myths about misspellings, such as "Something is wrong because my child cannot spell as well as he can read."

Sight Words- What are they? How important are they? Ways to hold kids accountable to the sight words you have taught.
Hands-On Spelling Ideas for teaching the alphabet and phonics patterns (There are over 100 ideas in this chapter!)
