I picked this curriculum out after my son started reading. I wasn't sure where his spelling level would be at, but he's bright and this ended up being perfect. I believe we'll stick with this through all the levels. The teacher's manual is also great.
This curriculum is very comprehensive. It uses several different methods to exercise use of the week's spelling words. It starts the week with a devotional story, tests the student's ability with the current word list and then there are different daily activities in which the student spells the words and uses them. There is proof-reading, dictation , memorization, etc. I will be recommending this to my friends.
The teacher's guide can be used multiple times, but you will need a workbook for each student. Even on weeks where my child starts the week with all words spelled correctly, we still do the dictation and proof-reading, as those have great value, even for a good speller.
We have a weekly class day, so I alter the 5 day schedule of the lessons to fit into 4 days. This works well for us.
My daughter really struggled with spelling until we started to use this curriculum. It is really multi-sensory, with spelling out loud, using paint or shaving cream, sand, crayons, letter and other things. It is set up for a pretest and than review of spelling words for next few days on days 3-5 the activities will also include words from previous chapters so she is constantly reviewing words again!
