Reviews - What do customers think about Spectrum Spelling, Grade 6?
Great for Homeschooling Apr 3, 2010
This book has been the perfect addition to my son's 6th grade Homeschool curriculum.
The lessons are very close to what he was doing in public school, and they're great practice for new vocabulary words.
A structured approach to spelling growth Jun 11, 2009
Our fourth grade daughter is a creative and intelligent writer, but struggles with spelling the way it is taught in her public schools. It tends to be taught from disconnected 'word lists' based on one test at the beginning of the year that 'places' you in a curriculum level. Once you are in a spelling group, most teachers rarely move you because they rarely re-test overall. You either get the same words over and over, or you are placed in too high of a group, because you can spell from memory words you've only seen once or twice, but do not understand. There is little help "sorting" the words, and no statement of spelling "rules". It becomes mindless memorization to spew back on a test, and then never use in your actual written work
This series is a structured approach that teaches rules for use in your writing in general, and uses a basic (not overwhelming) introduction to root words and suffixes that are related. Exercises introduce the word list, put the words in context, review what spelling rules English has, and assess your understanding after each list. My daughter's only slightly negative comment is that within each book, the words do not grow in difficulty, but instead focus on introducing more words that follow the same patterns. Still, she has become more comfortable with her own strengths as a writer and the concept that she can too learn spelling, even as a fourth grader who started late this school year with the 6th grade book. We are not rushing her through it, because she is doing this on top of her regular schoolwork, at a rate of perhaps one list per week. She has enjoyed it, and we are very glad we found it.
Highly Recommend This Series Apr 20, 2009
I highly recommend these books for any parents that do not have time to create their own spelling lists for their children. The progression of words, from easier to gradually more challenging, is well planned throughout the entire Spectrum Spelling series. Basically, each lesson consists of a spelling list with room for written practice directly next to the words. Then, on the following pages, there are a few written activities that involve the words from the spelling list. If you do not wish to use tests in your homeschool, but do not mind workbooks, then your child would very likely have a firm grasp on the spelling of the words simply by doing the activities that go with each lesson. I use these as a chance for my children to improve their penmanship, also (two birds, one stone). There are approximately 30 lessons (depending on grade level) with each containing the word list page and three pages of written activities. There is a dictionary in the back containing definitions for all the spelling words and an answer key for all of the activities (and oddly, even the spelling list). The last few pages contain room for notes and inside the back cover there is a workbook completion award.
