Publisher's Description

For more than fifty years, teachers and parents have used the Spalding Method to help millions of children learn to spell, read, and write. An accredited, phonics-based, total language arts program based on educator Romalda Spalding’s intensive study of how children learn, this multisensory approach is so natural and stimulating that reading itself is never taught outright—it simply begins.

The Writings Road to Reading shows teachers and tutors, parents and homeschoolers how to use the Spalding Method with their students and children. Incorporating spelling, writing (including handwriting), and listening/reading comprehension, the Spalding Method engages children’s visual, auditory, speech, and tactile faculties to transform the path to reading, writing, and comprehension into a superhighway.

As children put sounds together they form words, then combine those words into sentences. By learning how language works, children develop their creative minds and reasoning skills, which allows them to progress quickly to absorbing—and enjoying—good literature: first graders enjoy Where the Wild Things Are; second graders gobble up The Velveteen Rabbit; third graders savor Charlotte’s Web.

Spalding students consistently score far beyond national norms—demonstrated by more than fifty years of student achievement data. Most important, they love to read and write. In a digital world filled with distractions, The Writing Road to Reading is a vital educational tool to help children develop the literacy and critical thinking skills they need to thrive in today’s world.
