The 350+ activity task cards contain games and activities that students can complete on their own to reinforce spelling and vocabulary skills.

Teacher's manual included.

Category Description for Spelling Power:

Finding a homeschool spelling curriculum that works for your family can be a gargantuan task. Many of the spelling programs available are time-consuming, ineffective, expensive, or all three. These are the problems Beverly Adams-Gordon faced when she was searching for a spelling program for her daughter, who was having great difficulty in the subject. Finding nothing appropriate, she set out to create the best spelling program for struggling spellers that she possibly could.

For Spelling Teachers

Unlike many other homeschool spelling programs, Adams-Gordon provides all of the material that parents or teachers need to fully understand how the program works, all in one book. Teachers do not need to purchase a new book every year; the program can be used for children from age 8 until high school. The program includes several additional resources for teachers. The book itself has information on the most effective ways to teach spelling and extensive instructions for how to begin the program, as well as modifying it to support each student's learning style and abilities. A "Quick Start" DVD is also included for teachers who want to plunge right into the lessons. In addition, purchasing the program provides you with additional online resources, access to the Spelling Power website for extra support, and a subscription to the Spelling Power newsletter.

For Students Learning to Spell

One of the most attractive components of this program is its implementation in short daily increments. Adams-Gordon designed the lessons to last just 15 minutes per day. Each lesson begins with a quick five-minute test to check retention of previous lessons and introduce new words. The next five minutes are spent going over words the student misspelled, and the final five minutes focus on learning the new words. The lessons are rooted in phonics but also rely on spelling rules, making the program extremely effective.

Makes spelling power fun!

I have the spelling power book and found it hard to use the activities turning the pages back and forth to find one that my son liked. The boxed set of activities makes it easier to find, sort, and pick an activity.

do I need these for the spelling power program?
User on Jun 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You don't have to use them, but they can be useful for coming up with ideas for studying difficult words. There are some suggestions in the book as well. I don't use them often, but my son is only 7 and on "D" level. I expect we'll use them more as we get to more difficult words.

Collecting Dust
We are using Spelling Power this year and so I thought I'd get these Task Cards. I spent several different nights opening up the box and reading through some of the cards in hopes of finding some tasks for my children to do. They already stamp their words one day a week so they're already getting a tactile activity. They love stamping and it works so I'm not highly motivated to find a different activity. A lot of the cards in the box have very outdated activities despite having a copyright of 2015. The first task is "Tape Your Words." I was thinking this would involve using (sticky) tape somehow but upon reading the description what they mean is to "record yourself saying the words." Task card 6 says to "Dial-A-Word." The instructions say to "Dial your words on a telephone (if you use a real telephone, make sure that the receiver is down). Say each letter as you dial it." It's been a few decades since anyone has used this type of "real" phone. These have been collecting dust. However, I do love the Spelling Power book.

Great addition to our spelling program
Having the activity cards to go lang with Spelling Power has been a great addition to our language arts program. It has been easy to pull out the cards for a variety of grade levels and stick them into our homeschooling schedule.
