Category Description for The Spectrum Series:

If you're looking for a basic practice workbook, consider this series of educationally solid, quality books. From McGraw-Hill, these books have their roots in basal lines like SRA and Merrill (and other lines combined into the SRA group over the years). Because customers have asked for good, basic, interesting practice books, I've looked at many (including all the different ones those customers have mentioned). These are unquestionably the best - the best value, the most educational in content, the most interesting (even without little characters and graphic "gimmicks"); all in all the most complete, comprehensive and appealing of the lot. These are more like complete worktexts than mere practice books, but at a low cost. Material is secular but wholesome (some of it looks like it could have been culled from earlier textbook lines, before they "modernized") and traditional in format, but varied and involving. All series are written to be primarily self-instructional. The pages are all perforated and answers are included. Below are the

Spectrum Spelling comes highly recommended by many teaching professionals and homeschoolers

The Spectrum Spelling series is one of the best homeschool spelling programs available. In fact, the comprehensive, well-organized and easy-to-use workbooks make it an excellent addendum to the spelling programs for primary school students in mainstream education as well. Each workbook in this series appeals to your childs eye with full-color pages and numerous illustrations. The books contain approximately 25-30 lessons, depending on the grade level. Review sections of the previously learned material occur every three to five lessons. At the end of each book is an answer key to make grading more manageable for busy parents and teachers. Also included are a convenient spellers dictionary and a proofreaders guide.

Spelling Topics

Most of the lessons in all of the workbooks focus on phonics and word patterns, with a few other age-appropriate lessons, such as color words and the months of the year.

Lessons in Kindergarten and Grade 1 focus on learning the letters of the alphabet, the sounds that consonants and vowels make, letter recognition, determining the difference between short and long vowels, and the spelling of sight words and common words.

The Grade 2 and Grade 3 lessons concentrate on using contractions and homophones, building compound words, and recognizing sight words and common words. They also build on the previous lessons on long and short vowels.

Grade 4, Grade 5 and Grade 6 lessons look at making compound words, guarding against commonly misspelled words, using prefixes and suffixes, vowel sounds, identifying variant consonants, irregular and regular plural nouns, root words and diphthongs.

Homeschool Spelling Lessons

Each lesson starts with a word list, which contains additional challenge words. The following sections vary based on grade level. For younger grades, activities include writing the words, identifying rhyming words, completing the sentence, and arranging words in alphabetical order. Older children complete activities such as using the words across subjects, filling in the blank, creating compound words, creative writing, and proofreading.

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

Used this over the summer with my 1st & 2nd graders as part of a unit study on the orchestra My kids loved using this book Originally written by a conductor who wanted children to understand and appreciate classical music it introduces the different sections of the orchestra and you can listen as each instrument is played on the CD individually and then all the wind instruments together for example I found that this was a great way to introduce my kids to the orchestra I found some worksheets of the different families of instruments online etc percussion brass etc and let them color them Also we attended a performance by a strings orchestra of just homeschooled kids It was great and my kids are very excited to learn more
