Succinct Spelling for Logic Stage


Recommended Posts

My upcoming 5th grader is not the greatest speller. Not terrible, but not great. He does well on his spelling tests, but is also working a few books behind - finished Spelling Workout book C in 4th grade. I don't believe he has any learning quirks or disabilities - I think he's behind more because I jumped around programs a lot when he was younger.

So, help me jump ship again. 😉 I think he's ready for something at a more typical 5th grade level for spelling... I have both the Writing Road to Reading and Phonics Pathways. I thought about doing a phonics review including dictation using one of those resources. He's particularly bad at spelling multi-syllable words. I also don't want to spend a lot of time on spelling. I think that if we could get some clear rules/guidelines for how words are spelled and chunked, he could make a big leap in usage. He's a very good reader, though I'm not sure his exact reading level. He can read The Hobbit with no issues.

Does this sound like it would work? Is there another method or resource I should look into? Thanks!
