I got this spelling book because it was recommended through Sonlight. We hated it. It was only a matter of weeks before we tossed it aside and ordered All About Spelling. Sequential Spelling just teaches memorization of spelling words through word families - but not all word families follow the same rules. There's no explaination for why some words are spelled a certain way.
All About Spelling teaches how to spell a word and why words are spelled the way they are spelled. It has helped my kids become good spellers so much better than Sequential Spelling.
Haven't had this product too long, but already I think we're seeing improvement in spelling skills and vocabulary. I had heard good things about it, but I have to say, when I first got it and looked it over I was thinking it had been over-hyped. It is not as visually engaging as I would have liked. Also, I wish there were less words given per day. But the way words are presented and build upon each other seems to be effective. Students can also work independently for the most part.
I have 2 kids, 4 yrs apart, that both have serious spelling problems. I have tried a handful of other spelling programs. Nothing was working for them. This program took out the spelling rules and works on word families. Working great for them both. Thank You!
