This new eight-book spelling series makes possible an organized, effective spelling program in just thirty minutes of class time per week. Each book is suitable for half a school year. Book A is for the first half of second grade. Book AA must be used for the second half. The first ten to twelve words in each lesson are grade-level words that follow a particular pattern. Sight words frequently used in writing are also included. In addition, each lesson allows space for words from students' reading or writing. Spellwell offers students the opportunity to select words they would like to know how to spell. Spellwell's organization provides for daily practice at home, with class time used for a pretest and posttest and, in some lessons, group games. Spellwell also helps develop students' writing skill with exercises tht ask them to write a paragraph on a specific topic that includes several spelling words. The result will be students with a larger vocabulary who are able to communicate their ideas in writing.
