Give students a firm foundation for a lifetime of spelling success with AVKO’s Sequential Spelling
, a program that teaches students the patterns of English spelling. This seven-level spelling program builds on concepts learned to help students master even the most difficult and obscure spelling rules.
Sequential Spelling is based on the classic Orton-Gillingham approach of multi-sensory instruction. Rather than teaching lists of thematic words, Sequential Spelling teaches spelling word families (e.g. consonant + eg family....Leg, Peg, Beg). This enables the child to learn spelling inductively, the exact same way they learned to speak and to walk. This form of instruction is especially effective for children who struggle with rules, have attention challenges or are dyslexic because the letters are learned in sound context rather than through rote memorization.
This teacher's guide accompanies Sequential Spelling Student Workbook 1, Revised Edition. This new, revised edition features updated teacher instructions and spelling lists, an answer key, and optional coordinating student workbook complete with daily "Using your Words" activities. 72 pages, softcover.
