Category Description for Building Spelling Skills:

Based on two fundamental premises of developing excellent spelling skills, this worktext series incorporates spelling/phonics rules but likewise utilizes exercises that employ word writing repetition. Our English language has many spelling irregularities so developing skill in recognizing the arrangement of letters and/or syllables in selected list words is targeted by various word games and puzzles. Since this series is from Christian Liberty, you can also count on two things: the content is biblically based, and the books are a good value for the money.

Weekly lists of twenty words are covered in a series of daily lessons. Lesson activities are varied but include writing/identifying list words in sentences, reinforcing phonics rules, supplying endings, beginnings, etc., writing list words, taking pre and final tests. There is plenty of room to write answers and books are pleasing in appearance with occasional graphics and an accent color. Books 1 & 2 are primarily concerned with phonetic concepts and simple prefixes and suffixes. Starting in Book 3 there is an increased emphasis on vocabulary development with activities involving the identifying and/or supplying list word definitions. Book 5 is more than a spelling book; it's a mini-encyclopedia of spelling. The first six units feature the names of major countries and cities of the world. The next two units focus on American states and capitals. Then follows units featuring the terms used in a wide variety of favorite subjects such as health, food, trees, arts, entertainment, travel, and transportation, etc. Lessons in this book also require the alphabetizing of the list words. Book 6 is an examination of the great diversity and variety in spelling the rich sounds of the English language. Book 7 & 8 are basic studies in etymology with Book 7 devoted to word-building with prefixes and suffixes while Book 8 is dedicated to word roots. Both books require considerable dictionary work and are designed to help the student develop an ability to recognize meaning and spellings, based on word analysis techniques. The series is gradually being revised with second editions featuring nicer page layout and type, but very similar content. ~ Janice

This is a very affordable spelling program that is basic and simple. I didn't want to have to spend a lot of time on spelling and this has been a great independent spelling workbook for my kids.

Our spelling curriculum is lacking so I thought we'd give this a try.

This book(level 5) is very challenging for 5th graders. There are loads of foreign countries and their capitals in the first 8 units (1 week/unit)

is the teacher manual necessary ?
User on Jul 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Well, That depends on how good your geography skills and spelling skills of those geographical locations are. For this particular level, it's just easier to use the teacher manual for checking. Otherwise, you will have to look up all of the countries, etc. (if you are like me and geographically challenged. :) The teacher manual is not necessary for the other levels...just check the table of contents for similar issues and see what spelling topics they will be covering..

Love it, and will but next level
We love the spelling program, and it even incorporates some geography! My son is motivated to do it, and the lessons are not too lengthy.
