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.
Simple, easy, makes sence to my 16 year old boy. He has struggled with this for years. He is smart and spelling has held his confidence down. one page a day he does it no complaining. I have learned a lot as well.Great for Young Adults
We have found this workbook to be helpful and manageable. The lessons are about the right size: quick but meaningful. There is enough variety in the exercises to keep monotony away, but enough repetition and review to make the rules stick. Some of the exercises are intuitive in nature, which can be somewhat frustrating when dealing with new material. Overall, however, this is a good tool for strengthening spelling skills.
This book is great for students who struggle with spelling and its many different 'rules'. It repeats the same rule for several lessons with different words allowing the student to see and use it more than just once before moving on to another one.
