Christian Liberty Press Building Spelling Skills, Book 6 Second Edition

Christian values, uplifting quotes, and reminders to pray for help or thankfulness are noteworthy elements of this spelling workbook. Phonics principles focus on vowel sounds, er, sk, k, and sh sounds, as well as suffixes and English, Latin, and Greek prefixes.

Vocabulary-building is emphasized through contextual exercises as well as a lesson dealing with word meanings. Word-bank, crossword, fill-in-the-blank, and other exercises are included, helping children gain familiarity with how words and sentences are constructed. Test sheets are included at the back of the book. Teacher-Parent help is required. This second edition features updated fonts and other minor aesthetic changes; two-tone pages don't distract from the content. 122 pages, softcover. 6th Grade. 2nd Edition.

I have used many Christian Liberty Press books over the past 7 years of homeschooling. I like their economical pricing and no frills approach to education. However I am really not impressed with this spelling book. It is the first time I have used this company's spelling curriculum. The word list selections seem incredibly odd. Words that sixth graders will never use and probably never even read even in the oldest classics. Some examples...jonquil, valise, quay, yeoman, adieu, pert, wurst, caliper, earthbound(that one couldn't be found as one word in ANY dictionary!!). So anyway, if your child learns these words they may win some "spelling bee of obscur words" but they will more likely get sick of looking up weird words and trying to memorize the spelling of words they have never heard used.
I will be using ABeka spelling again next year!!
