      Hi Elizabeth,
      I have been reading your work on the Phonics Page and Don Potter's work on his website. I have been trying to work through his copy of Webster's Spelling Book but I need some advice. Until recently, I have been using Logic of English. It gave my kids a good start but my oldest (9 yr) is struggling with three syllable + words and has serious trouble spelling. My 7 yr old is a good beginning reader but I am hesitant to keep going with LOE because of DS's issues. Also, I have a 5 yr old eager to read but I just am discouraged at this point. I started using Webster but in reading some of the other posts it seems the kids don't really progress in spelling? Should I use Phonics Pathways with all of them? I hate to bring my 9 yr old down to one syllable words again but I don't know where to start. I have spent too much money skipping around. 
      In reading your other posts I see you talk about your Syllables Spell Success program. Should I start my 9 and 7 on that and hope that the spelling also improves their reading? I know you wrote elsewhere that it incorporates the syllabary. I am looking for clear guidelines and Webster's didn't offer that. 
      Any help you can give would be very appreciated. I am discouraged at this point and don't know what to do. 
      Thank you,

      Hey!  Would  you delete your quote from my post?  I'm going to address this situation in my usual way and don't want it to get any nastier than possible.

      I live in Southeast Huntsville just down the street from the Jones farm.  He is Dr. George Waite and his practice is called Cove Dental.  He is on 4 mile Road just behind the Valley Bend Giant strip Mall and near the intersection of Cecil Ashburn and Bailey Cove Road/Carl T JOnes Road.
