Spelling Workout helps children progress their spelling ability in stages from simple sound/letter relationships to learning more complex word-structure patterns. The primary levels have a strong phonics base, while the upper grades shift toward study of word origins and vocabulary. Guided instruction is the key in the early levels while the upper levels use self-guided, independent study.
The Spelling Workout series will engage your child with cross-curricular reading passages that teach key spelling words. It provides spelling practice through riddles, puzzles, and interactive activities.
Spelling Workout utilizes a test-study method of teaching spelling. Your child will first take a pretest of words that have not been introduced. Then, under your direction, your child self-corrects the test, rewriting correctly any word that has been missed. Your child will study the words during practice exercises and then reassess
their spelling by taking a final test.
