SIXSPELL PRIMARY-2


Book Description

Sixspell is an alternative program for teachers and students who still believe in the benefits of a daily spelling program without the use of the traditional spelling text. Research supports our program's process of direct spelling instruction 10 to 15 minutes per day; use of meaningful words; rules based on needs; and lack of benefit to student to study words he or she already knows how to spell. In addition, spelling researchers stress that children must recognize sound/symbol relationships and are able to read the words they are expected to spell before a successful spelling program can take place. The words in this program have been selected from a variety of word lists intended for Grade 3 spellers. However, there is a considerable overlap in words used for various grade levels in all marketed spelling materials. This program is also an effective re-mediation technique.
