When the author's daughter was having an inordinately hard time spelling, she evaluated different spelling programs, eventually creating her own How to Teach Any Child to Spell method. Focusing on how words sound, and then recognizing how those sounds look when written down comprises the main theme. Children are taught to pronounce correctly and make sure they're not confusing sound-alike letters like "i" and "e" or homophones. When they--or the teacher--finds misspelled words, they are to be catagorized according to spelling error, in the students notebook (stock # 62336). This companion book provides instruction for the teacher, dispelling spelling myths, giving tips and strategies, how to teach this spelling program and the building blocks of language. 25 pages, softcover. Appendixes with rules and lists of misspelled words also included.
