This is the second time we have used A Reason for Spelling. My student enjoys the stories with Biblical lessons in them and the variety of activities. I like the way it is all planned and laid out for me as the instructor. The only problem so far was the change in the additional activity page. Previously it was another word form activity page using the spelling words from the lesson, now it is an activity using different words altogether and I'd rather stick to the same words. Overall it is a great curriculum and we enjoy using it.
This is a quick and thorough spelling program. I have a 5th grader who excels when there is one on one teaching. This program is fast, fun, and effective. I am considering other subjects in this series as well.
