Spectrum Phonics/Word Study 2007
Combines four important skill strands - phonics, structural analysis, vocabulary, and dictionary skills - at each level. Four types of lesson pages offer thorough, clearly focused, systematic skills practice. Instruction pages introduce the skill; reinforcement pages provide practice, using context as well as phonics skills to help build the connection from decoding to comprehension; frequent review pages emphasize skill application; assessment pages provide feedback. As with other secular phonics lines, you may want to go a grade level ahead, especially if you're using a Christian school reading or spelling program. These are very comprehensive books; most are over 200 pages long! Unlike other phonics workbooks, they include an answer key right in the book. Two-toned. This series was revised in late 2006. Changes include a revised sequence between skills covered, and more nonfiction activities.
