do not waste your money Sep 13, 2008
I am a big fan of the grammar with a giggle series, so I bought this "book" thinking I was getting a wonderful tool to teach spelling. Wrong! It is not a book. It is a flip book with ideas you can find on the internet for free. I am not saying the teaching strategies don't work. But it is nothing new and I was very disappointed.
