If your child hates spelling, this is the book for you! It teaches/reviews one spelling rule each day, with a few minutes of practice time. Each one-page lesson can be completed in about 10 minutes, giving your child just the right amount of practice without boring or frustrating them with those pesky exceptions to the rules, which are presented in a seperate lesson. There is one full year of lessons in the workbook.
I am grateful to have found this book! My daughter is in 6th grade & struggles with spelling. She did not need nor did I want to make her plod through an elementary spelling book. It was too childish for her & would not have suited her needs. I stumbled upon this book & feel it is a true blessing. It is exactly what she needed! A simple yet thorough review of the spelling rules with just the right amount of practice. She has been able to improve her spelling skills without all the extra fluff in elem. books. The price fit our budget perfectly too. I had looked at a couple other recommended spelling programs but we could not afford them. (In my opinion they were way overpriced.) This price was extremely fair. A big thanks to this author from a grateful homeschool mama!
Thank you for Apples! This is a straight forward and easy program to use. Our kids love it and don't complain about Spelling anymore. My daughter wishes there were more than two books. She has said many times that Susan Kemmerer should publish books on other subjects. Great for struggling and non-struggling spellers alike.
This has been very beneficial for my son. I have been having him do one page a day along with the Sequential Spelling. He said it has helped him because of the review of the spelling rules. I would recommend this to anyone who needs an extra edge on spelling.
Apples is a very easy program to implement. I have struggled trying to add a remedial spelling program into our already full schedule in the past. This just about 10 minutes a day. My boys (ages 11 and 13) are doing well with it so far.
