This book has been a great help for those of my children to whom spelling does not come easy. I personally got straight A's in school in spelling, but soon forgot all those words I memorized to get the good grade. This book takes a different approach to common spelling errors. It focuses on the general rule of spelling with practical practice in daily bites. Very well done! I intend to use it with any of my children who are not naturally good spellers.
This book is a good workbook to supplement any spelling program. My 7th grade daughter uses this every day along with our other program. A new spelling rule or "clue" is introduced followed by several worksheet pages. There is a review page every ten days that goes over the last two rules studied. The pages are fun yet informative. The segments are short and do not overwhelm the student. It is strictly black and white with no color illustrations, but this does not affect my child. I would definitely use this again for my other children.
I love this! In my opinion, this is a much better way to learn to spell than the traditional method of memorizing words in a list. My 6th and 8th graders enjoyed this workbook, and I have seen an improvement in their spelling skills.
