Item description for A Reason for Spelling: Homeschool Pack Level E (Reason For Spelling) by Rebecca Burton, Eva Hill & Kay Sutherland...
Overview How do children best learn to spell? Research says it takes more than just rote memorization and drill. Activities with a purpose are the key! And what better purpose than learning Scripture values. Recommended for Grade 5. Every weekly lesson begins with a story - a contemporary theme story that develops key principles found in that week's Scripture verse. Daily lessons continue to build on this theme and help make learning to spell FUN! In addition, A Reason For Spelling (R) encourages regular personal writing activities in a values-based setting. This gives children a meaningful context for focusing on correct spelling. A Reason For Spelling(R) combines the latest research on how children learn to spell with all the strengths of traditional programs. It integrates spelling with reading, writing, and language arts, while teaching children all the high-frequency base words, plus hundreds of other word forms as well! A Reason For Spelling(R) covers six grade levels, with over 200 pages of learning activities in each student workbook. In addition, the detailed Teacher Guidebook provides a wealth of enrichment ideas! A Reason For Spelling(R) incorporates a variety of successful teaching techniques: daily practice, self-correction, visual imaging, detailed student feedback, learning games, the test/study/test sequence, and much more. It also includes special activities in every lesson to help motivate visual, auditory, tactile, and multi-faceted learners.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Reason for Spelling: Homeschool Pack Level E?
Most creative approach to spelling in years Aug 1, 2006
We homeschool and love "A Reason for Spelling" books. Each week starts with a story using the words for the week. This is followed with a pretest and looking at the shape of the words as well as the phonics connection between the words. On the second day, students practice their spelling words according to their learning style (kinesthetic, aural, visual, etc.). (Spell your words with Play-dough, while bouncing a ball, or into a tape recorder). The third day deals with definitions of the words. The fourth day includes dictation and proof reading. There is an optional practice page included in the teacher's manual for those needing or wanting more practice. (Note: You MUST have the teacher's manual for these books or parts of them will be inaccessible to you). On the fifth day, a test is given. For those having a class, there is also a game presented. Throughout, there are memory verses, journaling, and review units. We highly recommend this entire series!
