I have been looking at a the 1824 American Spelling Book and materials on Don Potter's website. If you use this or another old online spelling book, how do you use it with your kids? I like the material I just would like a do this on day 1 and this on day two layout.

We have just started using it this year with my 5 yo. We use it in conjunction with other phonics programs.


While using the speller, I teach it slowly (so far) mixing up methods throughout the week. I use the white board, extra large magnetic letters, and sing songs as just some of the ways we approach it.


We are quite early on with the syllabary so we'll see how effective it is for us at the end of the year.
