BatmansWife Posted October 9, 2012 Share Posted October 9, 2012 (edited) I'm either ready to pitch it (the book) or pitch a fit, not sure which yet. I'm so disappointed. Dd just started Soaring with Spelling level 2 today. Here's what Lesson 1, Day 1 says: "Words with f sound using ph and gh". Then the words, with definitions, are: phone, photo, graph, morph, laugh, cough, tough, rough. There is no teaching of these sounds or letter combinations or any explanation. Zip. Nothing in the answer key; it's just the answers. So, dd looks over all the words, we talk about each one, I have her underline the letters that make the f sound. Now I give her the pretest. Here's how she spells them: phone, photoe, gragh, morgh, laphe, cophe, tough, rough. :001_huh: Ugh! Now what? :banghead: I mean...there isn't anything that talks about the ough, augh, or anything else. And, this is just the first lesson! After the pretest I told her I don't think I wanna continue this spelling program. I can't see how it's going to help her spell. Has anyone else felt this way....or would you say stick it out for awhile longer and see how it goes?
