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

Trying out a different spelling course this year. This particular book (level 6) is supposed to review spelling rules, so as to make a nice recap for my seventh grader. Also, it's inexpensive.

I need to get back to spelling with my 6th grader and this looked challenging with an affordable price.

After trying a different spelling curriculum, we have been using the Building Spelling Skills series of books. My children have found them more interesting (various lesson activities), and I appreciate them including geographical, scientific, and other educationally valuable word groups.

Building Spelling Skills is a thorough and concise curriculum to teach spelling and some vocabulary.
Joanna D on Jan 3, 2017
I chose this because the cost is very reasonable and the books are very thorough and methodical. They do what the title conveys...they build the spelling skills and are grouped to help kids remember and see the connection between words.

need a good spelling review for my 6th grader. (recommended by Cathy Duffy)

Like the others so I am continuing.

I need a good review of spelling rules for my struggling-speller seventh grader. I wanted something that could be done semi-independently without 50 million steps between learning a rule and actually practicing spelling.
Resa E on Mar 15, 2016
My oldest son used these books and now my other two boys are enjoying them as well. I love the format of the books, very traditional and as the years increase, I like that there is content for the kids to learn (Off the top of my head World Geography) as well as spelling.

I needed to get back to spelling with my sixth-grader; this looked like an excellent beginning point for that age level.
User on Feb 15, 2016
Great curriculum, great price.
Elizabeth S on Jan 20, 2016
This series is advanced, but an inexpensive way to teach spelling skills to children - especially those who are naturally good spellers. Our struggling spellers have had to slow down and work a year or so behind their grade level.
