Help with Spelling Workout placement?


Recommended Posts

My son, 8, is a very strong reader but has had no real phonics instruction. We tried Sequential Spelling this past year and, while he did fine on the word list, he couldn't spell the words in context. I let it go for the year. Now, it seems spelling has clicked with him and he'd like to start something new. I've decided on Spelling Workout but I'm not sure if he needs level B or C.


As I said, he has no real phonics instruction so that leads me to start him at level B. But, he's made vast improvements with his spelling recently so that leads me to start him at C so he isn't bored or working below level.


Any suggestions?

I started dd in A last yr halfway through first grade. We were doing a phonics program and I let her move at her own pace. Most weeks they were so easy we did 2 lessons.(I tested her on Spellingcity.com) We finished the whole A book and moved on to the B when we finished. I would do the same with your son-start with B and if it is easy move faster, if he finds it more difficult half way through B you can slow down.
