  1. After several years of slogging through Spelling Workout, I'm seriously considering moving to a non-workbook approach to spelling next year. I use Spelling Workout so it will be independent, but I often have to sit and explain to my 5th grade ds what he is supposed to be doing in the workbook exercise. More time seems to be spent explaining the exercise or trying to find a word in a crossword puzzle exercise than actually practicing spelling! My kids are probably average when it comes to spelling. They occasionally make spelling errors, but I wouldn't classify them as poor spellers. I don
  2. This is what I posted on the old boards (found it by googling) These are both Word doc's so some punctuation may be missing Use Fry s list of 1000 most frequently used words . The first 250 or so comprise 65% of written lang. Go through the list till the child misses 3 words. Have the child write these three words in some way that points out the difference between how the child spells it and the correct way. 1) You can use a marking method, like Sanseri s or Spaldings, or just underline two letter combinations that make one sound, etc. or 2) Write the tricky part of the word in a sep
  3. What kind of learners might my girls be if they love and are doing really well with Rod & Staff English and Spelling Plus? Okay, maybe "love" is taking it a little too far. They don't complain about doing it, throw fits or suddenly have to go to the bathroom or, well, you get the idea! I know they are very different: my older one runs on a clock, routine and schedules while my younger one clearly defines "time" as something of an imposition. I'm just trying to figure out what is uniting them! I know that being with them all the time I'm the one who should be able to figure out what t
  4. What kind of learning style might my girls have if they love Rod & Staff English and Spelling Plus? These two programs are new to us this year and huge hits. Not only are there no tantrums, fits or sudden disappearances at school time, but they're actually retaining the information and it's working! My girls are very different: one runs on the clock, schedules, lists and routines, the other thinks that "time" is some artificial imposition that's crimping her non-existent plans. What I really want is to know what unites them so I can capitalize upon it since they're so close academi
  5. After much prayer, research, and searching and posting on this board . . . . I bought Spelling Plus. I got it on Friday and I am hoping to start this tomorrow. I am a little confused on giving the pre-test and I thought I would ask her since I figure someone can get my brain wrapped around this idea. :tongue_smilie: Each level pre-test is all 165 words for the level in random order. I am confused on why it is in random order. I would think you test the list in order and start with the list they miss a few. Only reason I can think of not to do them in order is because it would make it e
  6. I tried to do a search but keep coming up with all threads with about "spelling"...grrr. Anyway, I'm thinking of switching over to this program. It looks really interesting and since I'm already familiar with SWR and it's rules, I think it would be an easy transition. My oldest really struggles with spelling. He can spell words from a spelling list correctly but just can't seem to transition it into his actual writing. I'm intrigued by Spelling Plus because the spelling words are in the context of dictation and sentences, not just lists which I think might benefit him greatly. Anyon
  7. I did a quick search but it brought up about 10 pages. I looked through about four and couldn't find anything. If you've used Spelling Plus, can you give me a quick review...what did you like/dislike? Thanks!
  8. Hi, I wanted to see if anyone has used Spelling Plus and Dictation book. Did it help your child learn how to spell? I looked through the books and having a hard time figuring out the best way to use the book. If anyone has used it, can you please tell me how you used the book and how the program is going for you and your family? Also, was it helpful to get the Spelling Plus workbook? Thank you, Karen
  9. teaches a new spelling rule each week and gives a list of words to match the rule? I really think this would work very well with my daughter. I don't need fancy tiles and such. Thanks, Penny
  10. I am not sure what I want to use with my dd next year. This year we have used a combination of dictation and Apples and Pears spelling (we have only completed half of a book so far). Both are helping, but I don't think either one alone is quite what my dd needs. I just used an online test today and her scores have a huge gap. Her word regcogntion is a high 12th (5 grade levels higher than when she look this same test 4 months ago). Reading comprehension is low 8th grade (almost 2 grade levels higher than last time.) Spelling is a high second grade (.33 grade levels higher than last time)
  11. Okay I am not a speller and confess that it is a horrible task for me. Is the whole point of spelling, just do it? Like the Nike commercials - Just do it My kids can't spell. No shock there since we never touch spelling since I am so poor at it. However before I run out and buy another program, someone tell me the whole point is you just take a list and work it till you can spell it. There are fancy programs, basic programs but the point is to actively work a list of words you can't spell. RIGHT??? Given that I can't spell, I wasn't sure if it is simply that simple. I have the follo
  12. How do you do that when the word list don't match up? I can't seem to figure this out. For instance, if you are on list J, where would you pull the sentence dictation from SP? Or do you not worry about that and just start from the beginning dictating sentences? I am seriously thinking of switching to AAS for this reason alone. I want more than the dictation sentences in the Wise Guide. I have a hard time trying to dream up my own sentences. I hope this makes sense? I currently use SWR but want more sentences using current and past words for review. I know some of you use SP along with SWR but
  13. How do you do your spelling ? I'm currently using spelling plus dictation, alternating with SWR. I use all SWR words in sentences. HOwever, I'm getting tired dreaming up SWR sentences and to make sure that they go spiral (i.e. reviewing previous words). I decided, rather than rushing through 2000 words in 5 years (SWR pace), I would rather my dc to have long term memory of 1000 words of SPelling Plus in a pace of 6 years. I see that hter are some notes on punctuation and capitalization on SP dictation book. SO my question is do you use all the resources in that book ? Or do
  14. I've posted before about the trouble my 8 yos has with spelling and writing, and it's continuing on. Despite the fact that he has had a list of spelling words every week, and that he gets most words correct on the final test each week, he continues to spell almost every single word in his other writing phonetically. It looks like what I would expect from a child just learning how to write, maybe a 4 or 5 year old. He's not really improving much, and it's getting to the point where it will become a problem in his co-op classes, because he won't be able to keep up with the others when it comes
  15. I see some of you use Spelling Plus Dictation. How exactly do you do that? I need examples. :001_smile: For example, we are on list I-2. How do you know where to start in the spelling plus book? Do you just start from the beginning and start writing all the sentences? If there is another resource that would line up better, I'm all ears. I can never think up sentences on the fly. Much less use words that spital back from the first list. Thanks, Sandy
  16. My DS is just about to finish up AAS level 1. He really likes it and would like to move on to level 2. I, too, like AAS with a few exceptions. We mostly love the dictation and the clear explanation of the rules. Some of the phonograms we find strange, but can work through it (like si, ti, ci...he learned to read with sion, tion, cion...etc) I was getting ready to order level 2 the other day, and was struck with the thought of how much this series is going to cost us. The first 2 levels are 30 each, the next 2 are 40 each and there are still 2 levels yet to be released! I'm not sure I
  17. Not the spelling program but the dictation book. How do you use this with another spelling program? I am confused? We have been using SWR but I really want to get dd writing more. I have read some use this dictation book for sentence ideas. How do you do this? How do you know what list to start with? Do you just not worry and start from the beginning? One of the reasons I am considering switching to AAS is because of all the dictation sentences included with each list. I really like that about AAS. Thanks, Sandy
  18. :lol:Okay , why is this one subject so frustrating to me ? I can handle everything else but I'm beginning to feel like I'm a spelling dictionary to my daughters all of the time . They are going in 4th and 5th grades and its constantly ... " Mom how do you spell?" Of course I try to make them sound words out and sometimes they get it . But most times they dont . My 10 year old is an awful speller. Period . No matter what I've tried with her . I have no clue what to do at this point . My 8yr old's spelling isn't too bad but she has picked up that horrible phrase " Mom , how do you spell ....? "
  19. I was wondering if anyone has used the Spelling Dictation Resource Book without the Spelling Plus 1000 Words.... book? I'm interested in a source for dictation (by spelling difficulty), but I don't really need another entire spelling program.... Thanks!
