  1. I am currently looking for a spelling program to go along with our R&S phonics, reading and English. The spelling was so awful when we tried it with R&S so we'll be using something different. I bought AAS and was impressed with the approach to teaching spelling but unimpressed with the cost and all the fluff that it involved. I can't keep up with it lol I've looked at How To Teach Spelling and Phonetic Zoo, each running into less then mediocre reviews. Are there any others you would recommend to me? Next year I'll be working with my K, 2nd and 3rd grader. Thanks in advance!
  2. I bought a used copy of Rudginsky's How to Teach Spelling. Is there any great value to having the workbooks? If so, is there any value to buying the lower level workbook (like, lots more work on these things) or does each level contain ALL the same info as the lower ones plus new stuff? And finally, if I have the How to Teach book, do I need the teaching manuals for the workbooks? I can't tell based on Rainbow Resource's few sample pages -- the only ones I found online. Thank you.
  3. I started using How to Teach Spelling with my 9yo a few weeks ago, but I still don't know how I'm supposed to be using the program. I have the TM and workbook (level 2). I read the introduction, including the typical lesson plan. It sounds like I'm supposed to: Introduce a new phonogram Have ds read words including that phonogram Ask him to write out all the phonograms he knows for a particular sound Dictate 4-5 nonsense syllables Dictate 6 words Dictate phrases and sentences. Ok, just writing that out was helpful. But I still have questions, especially since we are at the beginning of the program (we're on ch 3--initial consonant blends). How does the workbook fit in with these lesson plans? I don't see either one referencing the other. For our last few lessons, I've just had him do a workbook page, where he sounds out a constant blend, marks the blends on the word list, then copies all the words. He's a terrible speller, but a great decoder, so the workbook pages we have done so far have been super-easy for him. But it is easy for me to just give him a worksheet, while I'm trying to figure out the program. How many phonograms do you cover in a day? The sample lesson plan had three seemingly unrelated sounds for the child to write out phonograms. How do you choose which sounds to use? Is this primarily a way of reviewing how to spell sounds they have already learned? How much time do you spend on each phonogram? A day? A week? Do you assign the child spelling words to study throughout the week? Have them review words that they misspelled during dictation? If they spell a word incorrectly during dictation, do you correct them immediately? Do you assign that word again later in the week? How do you keep track of which words and phrases you have already used? I'm starting to think I need to keep my own spelling workbook so I know what I've covered. It seems like this program should be simple and straightforward. I don't know why I'm not getting it. I'd love to hear details about how you use it in your home.
  4. I am switching spelling programs in a month or two and this program seems to fit the bill but I can't seem to find many reviews on it. I am looking for an inexpensive, easy to use (i.e. pretty much open and go) rule based program that presents the rule, gives the child some practice, has some dictation and then moves on. I don't need a bunch of manipulatives or bells and whistles. I just want to get the job done as painlessly as possible. My son is workbook averse, but will tolerate a little bit of book work once in a while. I'm hoping this program is not super workbook-y, if it is then it won't work for us. Also, my DS will have completed AAS level 2 before moving into this program, is HTS 2 a good place to start? I appreciate any feedback, both positive or negative! TIA :)
  5. I need some suggestions for spelling for both my kids. I want it to be easy, open and go. They need reinforcement of spelling rules and practice with the words. I would prefer it to be a workbook type for price and ease. We are using AAS and it just isn't going well....no retention and too many bells and whistles.
  6. I bought the HTTS book and Level 2 of the How to Spell book. I am confused on how to use it. Do I just go by the How to Spell book and refer to the HTTS manual as needed? Do I use a notebook in addition to the HTS book? The manual gives a sample of what the student page should look like but there is nothing like that in the workbook. To further confuse me, the manual is divided by chapters but the workbook is not. If anyone has used this can you please lay it all out for me? I have tried searching for the answer on here and on the web but haven't found anything that has cleared this up for me. Thanks in advance!
  7. Dd9 recently wrote a 3 page story for fun. It was the first long piece of composition that she ever produced. I wasn't correcting or grading it, but looking through it made me realize that she isn't going to be a natural speller. I had planned on just going over words as they came up in her writing, but now I'm considering using a program. I really like the looks of HtTS, but it's been really hard to get a good sense of how the program flows. I specifically want to know how teacher intensive it is, what does a day look like, how much time per day, and if you progress to the next workbook once you've completed one. (I know she would start with workbook 3 but once she's completed it would she move to workbook 4?) Thanks!
  8. I'm wondering what the differences are in these workbook-based programs. I know HtTS is said to be a lot like AAS but in workbook format. Do the workbooks spell the content of each daily lesson out more clearly than the TM? Also, Ellie mentioned once that if forced to make a workbook recommendation for folks who insist on it, Rod & Staff Spelling by Sound & Structure would be her choice. Ellie, if you don't mind, can you share what you like better about this than SWO? I've never seen R&S Spelling before; only a quick peek at online samples. As for SWO & AAS - That's what I have, so I'm wondering how the other 2 above compare. I like what AAS teaches, and I like SWO's format. Can you offer any comparison of HtTS or R&S spelling to eachother or to SWO or AAS? :bigear:
  9. Can anyone tell me about these two spelling programs? Are they similar to each other and/or to AAS? If you have used them, what did you like and what didn't you like? Anything else you can tell me about them?
  10. Anyone familiar with Spellwell? How does it compare to R&S Spelling? It is written apparently by the same lady that did Explode the Code. I saw a really good review on it from Homeschoolreviews.com but haven't really seen anything else on it. I can't find samples online. It covers 2nd-5th grades. So this would be for my 2nd grader. My other options I've been pondering are R&S Spelling 2 or HTTS 2 or AAS 1. :glare:Hmmmm.... TIA!
  11. I recently heard about How To Teach Spelling workbooks put out by EPS here and after checking out the samples I'm wondering how similar this is to Webster method. Elizabeth...it looks like they include nonsense words:001_smile: Just wondered if this might help those learning to use Webster or McGuffey speller for spelling to have a workbook for extra practice. (Or, if they prefer workbooks.) I haven't seen the whole book...only a sample.
  12. I have no complaints about AAS other than the price. Has anyone switched from AAS to HTTS and were you happy you did? Thanks!
  13. http://www.christianbook.com/how-to-spell-grade-3/laura-rudgins/9780838818527/pd/41852?event=CF#curr I was looking at this workbook for a soon to be 4th grader. It looks pretty good from the few sample pages I was able to see. Has anyone used this successfully? My son is not a good speller (also not good at decoding words) but I recently found out that he likes memorizing rules, so I think it may be a good fit since the workbook looks like its pretty heavy on memorization. Any thoughts? We've only been home schooling since January and haven't used any spelling curriculum thus far. Thanks!
  14. Can anyone tell me about this program? I'm looking for something new for my 4th grader. I recently dropped Spelling Power b/c I was frustrated with the fact that it didn't teach the "why's" of spelling. I decided to take dd through the spelling portion of Phonics Road 1 (which I'm using with my boys), but the words are way too easy for her. After working through the first half of the program in the last 3 weeks, she has a good understanding of the phonograms and how to mark them. Now she's ready to move on to some more challenging words. Is HTTS/HTS an O-G program? Does it use phonograms that would be similar to PR? If I bought level 3 would that be about the right level for 5th grade?
  15. Hi, I am currently using AAS and have tweaked it alot to fit our needs. My dd has totally rejected the tiles(which is ok with me) and I have created a sheet that she uses to write her spelling words on. I don't even use the cards at all. I am about to complete Level 1 and was looking at How to Teach Spelling since it is cheaper. Why buy a program to shelve half of it? Is HTTS similar? Basicly what I do now is go over the rule and practice it a bit then call out each spelling word to her...if she spells it correctly then I have her write it on our homemade sheet. We only work on the words that she misses then move on to the phrases. I like a program that has a rule to work on and a list of words that use that rule. I chose a OG based spelling because my dd sometimes hits a word that she "has to know" why it is spelled that way. I tried SWR with her and that ended in tears everyday. I think marking words was just overkill and it was starting to kill our love of homeschooling. Any suggestions? Penny
  16. I am looking at both AAS and how to teach spelling. I have a a 6 year old that will start spelling in the fall and a 7 year old that has done one year of spelling, but is really struggling with it. What is the best program for that age? I've seen a couple of posts in the forum that lead me to believe that How to teach spelling might be for a little older child. Is that true. Is there any other curriculum out there that I'm missing. I'm ready for a change, just can't figure out what I want to change to. TIA
  17. For those of you who use How to Teach Spelling by EPS (Rodginsky), what are your day to day lessons/weekly progressions like? I've looked at some samples, but I still can't wrap my head around what will be done in each lesson and what is accomplished in a given week. I'd appreciate any insight you can give!:001_smile: Thanks!
  18. I just bought How to Teach Spelling and How To Spell Workbook 3 but I'm confused as to how to start. I will be using it with a 4th grader who is a terrible speller (I swear spelling is heriditary and he gets it from his father, lol).
  19. I've got SWR and AAS, but i'm so tired of the constant work involved in spelling. We've been doing SWR for about 2 solid years and my son still has horrible spelling. He starts 5th grade this year. He loves the program (swr) b/c he enjoys spending the time w/me. However, I have two other children to teach (trying to use AAS w/them, but I'm finding there is NO time after the SWR and writing, and other subjects my oldest is doing) and have to cut down on the 'one on one' time at some point. Also, what I seem to be finding is that he understands the logic behind the rules for spelling, but he doesn't seem to know or understand how to apply them to his writing. The other day he spelled 'get', 'git'! He's in 5th grade!!! There are some slight LD issues, but I have complete faith that he can spell better than what I am witnessing. I think part of his problem is that I see that he struggles in many language arts areas and I don't push him or require all that much of him. Well, now, I am finding that I have a 5th grader that thinks EVERYTHING is FAR TOO HARD for him! :glare: I find that at this age/year; I would love to require more responsibility from HIM instead of ME! :glare: So, to the question at hand. How to teach spelling was mentioned on here the other day and it peaked my curiosity. So, I've been looking into it and love that it's based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. I love that it's very similar in style to what he's already been taught- spelling rules/phonograms, etc. But, i'm loving what appears to be a more independent approach to spelling. It seems less teacher intensive. Am I correct in assuming that? I appreciate any insight you ladies can give! Thanks, Bethany
  20. I did a search for my last comments about HTTS so that I could admit to everyone that I found AAS very cheap used and bought it. :D I have no doubts that it is based on HTTS, but it has some incremental steps that HTTS is missing, probably pulled from an OG reading program. DD was balking at sounding out and learning phonograms and basically anything phonetic about spelling. Having AAS is worth it for me because I am absolutely confident that I am teaching it the correct way, and that I am not making her do something she isn't ready for, or missing any steps. I need that confidence to stand up to DDs bad attitude. I will probably switch back to HTTS after this first level of AAS because then I can implement their methods with HTTS, plus the beginning steps are already taken care of. I have been recommending HTTS instead of AAS all over. I have egg on my face. :tongue_smilie:
