Spectrum Spelling 2015

All > Spelling / Vocabulary > SPELLING PROGRAMS > Spectrum Spelling > Spectrum Spelling 2015

This series is in full-color, with 36 lessons per level. Described here is my sample, a grade 3 book. All but a few of the lessons are based on a phonetic construct or word pattern. The remaining lessons focus on related words like names of holidays, names of months, or "easily misspelled words." Lessons begin with a word list consisting of both core and challenge words. In the focus section, students say each word, study the spelling, write the words, and read a spelling tip pertaining to the words. In the next section, Words and Meanings, students practice using words in context. Word Works concentrates on specific parts of speech or word constructs. The Word Play section presents a variety of activities. As the title suggests, these often include a little puzzle or game. The last section in each lesson is Write on Your Own. It contains a short writing exercise, then proofreading practice. At the end of the lessons is a Steps in the Writing Process page, used as a reference for writing assignments. A very nice speller dictionary follows as well as a complete answer key. I assume other levels are similar in format. As with the phonics series, you may want to use a grade level ahead if your child is using a Christian reading program. 200+ pgs.

The kindergarten level, new in 2011, addresses letter recognition, short vowel practice, beginning and ending consonant sounds, and sight words. There are 27 four-page lessons and review is done every 2 to 3 lessons. A dictionary and answer key are found at the back of the book. A spot check of the two editions indicates the content of the newer edition (2015 copyright) is essentially identical to the older edition of this series (2003 copyright) although the covers are different.
