The Spellwell series uses phonics to support learning English spelling rules/generalizations. The lessons reinforce the concept for the week and the "alternative homework," when listed at the bottom of the daily activity, helps extend the learning for the student who needs to stretch a bit. "C" is for first half of school year.
We have used many different and more expensive spelling programs but we really enjoy Spellwell.
I really like the fact that the spelling words are used in worksheets every day leading up to the spelling test on Friday. Most curriculums give you a set of words, maybe a day or two of activity sheets, but for the most part just make you repetitively write the spelling words. That's just boring.
The only negative I would give to this curriculum it that it is visually bland. Not really a big deal but it would be more appealing to the student if it were in color.
Ahhh, the search for the elusive "good" spelling curriculum. My oldest son is nearing the end of 4th grade, and have we ever run the gamut of spelling curricula. We have used Spellwell at a few different grade levels, and it's...ok. Nothing life-changing, and my son doesn't look forward to doing it any more than he did any of the others. The thing that frustrates me is that sometimes there will be words on the list that are obscure at best. (Why does your average fourth grade child need to know how to spell "plainest"? I had the "plainest" plain M&M's yesterday? Those three girls look plain, but she is definitely "plainest"? Give me a break. Nobody uses that word!!) Also, my son finds some of the assignments confusing...a few days ago he had to do a crossword, and several of the words were not even spelling words, I guess he was supposed to just pull them out of the air! Some of the grade levels have been better than others, he really enjoyed level A. But alas, we are still searching for a spelling curriculum that really, really fits for next year.
