Review 1 for The Spell Of Words
Date:September 28, 2007
This is the perfect resource for the older students who is not a natural speller. Each lesson introduces a new spelling rule, and provides ample practice of words that follow the rule. Since the student is learning the rule instead of an arbitrary list, they can finally have spelling success. I especially like that absence of silly puzzles and word finds that make most spelling seem juvenile. This product is ideal for upper elementary through high school, and is ideal for my dyslexic student.
