About The Program

A structured and graded method to plan spelling lessons

How to Teach Spelling is an excellent program for teachers who want their students to learn to recognize the sounds in the English language, to decode words, and to spell words correctly by relying on spelling rules and patterns rather than on memory. Each lesson builds on previous lessons; phrases and sentences for dictation include words that test the rules that have already been learned. Sight words are also assigned in order of difficulty and incorporated into the phrases and sentences for dictation. The manual also offers a suggested teaching method and typical lesson plan.
