Category Description for Spellwell:

A flexible spelling program, designed to practice words by spelling rule, but incorporating high-frequency sight words and additional words of your choice. This allows you to include content-area words from other subject areas or words your child has misspelled in writing. Another nice feature is the upgrading of the lesson if a child misses less than two words on the pretest. Words with the same phonetic or spelling rule, but at a higher reading level, are substituted for those on the original list. For example, if words like "tire," "hole," and "mistake" are no challenge, they are replaced by words like "telephone," "useful," and "earthquake." As you might guess, this lesson's rule is "Words with Silent e." An "outlaw" word for the lesson is "whole," since it doesn't conform to its sound. After the pretest, the student uses the words in the list in games and activities throughout the week. According to research referenced here, students more easily retain information that's practiced in regular, short intervals than for a longer time less frequently. Exercises appear varied, educational, and interesting, giving the students experience writing and working with the words before the post test.

Cartoonish blackline illustrations liven the text and would be fun to color in as a reward for good work. Teacher guides are optional, providing an answer key for the exercises. You should not need them at this level, but they are inexpensive and will help busy moms save time.

inexpensive, well recommended

All About Spelling has been great in terms of reviewing phonics and rules, but it's become tedious and time-consuming and my daughter and I both dread it. I need to find something she can do more independently (which is preferred method anyway), something she can have fun with, and something she can complete in about 10 minutes a day every day (she really struggles with spelling and needs the daily interaction with it). This seems to fit all requirements.

I read several Cathy Duffy reviews with my son who is struggling with spelling, and after reading the review and looking through the sample pages on Rainbow Resources' website, this is the program that looked most appealing to both him and me.

Have successfully used the entire series with my older children. They enjoy the variety of exercises within the lessons. They work on it pretty independently.

Need a spelling program that can be done somewhat independently. Had great success with this with my oldest.

Not boring.

Need a simple speller workbook and this one is recommended by Cathy Duffy. Since it's low cost it's worth a try. Hoping my boys like it : )

I think my 2nd grader needs some help with spelling!

I have heard great things about this program from other homeschooling families, and I'm excited to try it with my daughter this year.

2nd grader learns well and likes workbooks. She doesn't need Explode the code, but enjoyed the workbooks.

What is the difference between A and Aa?
Candi on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: First you do book A (about half a year's worth of spelling lessons, at one per week)... then you move to Aa. They follow each other. Same with the rest of the series (first do B, then Bb).

Not loving this one, which is surprising to me because I love Explode the Code by the same author. We've had more success with spelling by doing copywork.

Fun and my son can work on most exercises independently. Illustrations are simple but entertaining.
