When they--or the teacher--finds misspelled words, they are to be catagorized according to spelling error, in the students notebook (stock # 62336). This companion book provides instruction for the teacher, dispelling spelling myths, giving tips and strategies, how to teach this spelling program and the building blocks of language. 25 pages, softcover.
