Product Description:

This spelling notebook is specifically designed for younger spellers by providing widely spaced lines with the referential dotted half line. There is ample room to write the set of twenty spelling words covered in the week's lesson from the Wise Guide for Spelling. The log has room for over 1000 spelling words. ~ Enh

Children learn best when they build something themselves. We have them actively hear, say, write, read, and explain what they log in their book. The front pages have two columns for spelling words with room at the bottom of the page for the best original sentence of the week. Reference Pages are formatted as an appendix in the back of the book. A John Hancock signature chart is included for charting improvement in penmanship. Students create a new log every school year. Principles overlap from year to year. As they progress through the Wise List, they apply the same rules to a growing base vocabulary. Each year's log is tailored to the spelling level covered that year. The teacher follows the instructions in Wise Guide and SWR to build a sample of what she will be teaching. Creating the teacher log is a key part of teacher prep.

Category Description for Complete Programs - Phonics:

Programs in this section go beyond teaching children how to read, incorporating phonetic readers, spelling and writing as well. Arranged roughly by grade/age.

Category Description for SPELLING PAPER / TABLETS:

We always used steno notebooks for spelling when I was young, creating new columns when we'd get to the bottom of the page. This idea is better! Each package of paper contains 500 sheets of white, wide ruled paper, measuring 4" x 11"; perfect for your long spelling lists.

Category Description for Spell to Write and Read:

What do The Writing Road to Reading, and this program, Spell to Write & Read have in common? Both have similar (and potentially confusing) names. Both would be labeled intensive phonics. And Both would claim a teaching progression something like this: sounds of speech - building words - developing a spelling vocabulary - writing original sentences - and then reading follows. If that sounds a little backwards to you, remember that these programs have very devoted followers who claim great success using this methodology and Spell to Write and Read is one of Cathy Duffy's 100 Top Picks for Homeschooling Curriculum.

Spell to Write and Read by Wanda Sanseri is an updated replacement for a previous program (Teaching Reading at Home and School) and is designed exclusively to work with the W.I.S.E. Guide for Spelling, also by Mrs. Sanseri. While SWR and the WISE Guide are considered a reading and spelling program, they could also be used as a stand-alone spelling program for a child who is already reading. SWR functions as a step-by-step teacher's guide to accompany the specific word lists in the WISE Guide. Covering preparation, philosophy, preschool pointers, reading aloud, evaluating achievement levels, and teaching penmanship with phonograms, it also illustrates in scripted detail the spelling dictation process and the spelling rule Reference Pages with instructions and examples. These spelling rule Reference Pages are central to the entire teaching/learning system. Ideas for reading assignments, ways to improve comprehension skills and refine composition skills round out the teacher's tools. In summary, this is the overall master book of a product combination that works together to teach the first four to five years of language arts or to remediate students of any age. The other components include the WISE Guide, 70 Basic Phonogram Cards, Spelling Rule Cards, 70 Basic Phonograms CD, the Primary Learning Log, and the Black Learning Log (more details on these below).

The W.I.S.E. Guide for Spelling (W.I.S.E. stands for Words, Instruction, and Spelling Enrichments) includes a core spelling list that is an updated version of the well-known Ayres List - a foundational vocabulary of 2000 spelling words. Words are divided into manageable daily lessons with 2 pages of teaching ideas for each set of 20 words. Each lesson has preliminary warm-up drills, motivational comments for introducing the lesson, and reminders to teach specific Reference Pages from SWR. Sample sentences are given to illustrate each word. Selections come from the Bible, literature, quotes from famous people, or instructive comments. Each word is divided into syllables and marked for spelling rules. Suggested teacher dialogue is provided. Optional enrichment activities involve a wide variety of subjects - art, literature, composition, grammar, etymology, alphabetizing, analogies, oxymorons, and many more.

This program, like other intensive phonics programs, is exceedingly detailed and painstakingly comprehensive and thorough. The extreme attention to detail would detract for many, but for those who want to follow a thoroughly researched and carefully implemented approach, this may be for you. ~ Janice

Essential AND Organized: helps kids learn the rulesof spelling, which, contrary to popular opinion, proves English spellings to be sometimes a bit complex, but NEVER random!!! Both language and culture evolve. This program teaches the history of English, too. Simply RICH!

Starting Spell to Write and Read next year. Excited to start.
Angela P on May 25, 2017
I chose this because I am starting a 4 year old on Spell to Read and Write. From reading the reviews and the manual, it looks like using the pre-formatted book adds value to the student experience. Once it arrives and we try it, I will have a better idea of if the special composition book is worth the extra money.
Laura P on Mar 22, 2017
These inexpensive books are exactly the right format to use with Spell to Write and Read's spelling lists. I had used generic notebooks the previous year, but these pre-formatted Learning Logs were much simpler to explain to my children and took much of the hassle out of spelling list time. They were entirely worth the price.
Danielle W on Feb 26, 2017
I love the way that this is set up. It is easy to use with the SWR curriculum.

It is so much easier not to have to format a composition book. Plus the spacing of the lines is better for young writers.

So glad I bought it this year!
This is our second year of using Spell to Write and Read. But last year, trying to save money, I just used "primary compositon notebooks" instead of buying these. This year, I " splurged" and bought the official learning logs ( they are not much of a splurge! ). It's been much easier having these learning logs, which are all pre-formatted and have the reference pages in the back outlined and ready to use. Especially since these are the only consumable part of the SWR curriculum, I am delighted with the product and low price and will certainly buy them again. My 7 and 5 year olds do fine with the size of the lines, which was my only concern ( they are smaller than the loose-leaf Primary-ruled writing paper that is widely available).

I've struggled with an effective implementation of "Writing Road to Reading" for a few years especially with trying to locate the recommended student materials This five buck learning log is just the thing for beginning students! It has appropriately lined pages and headings printed helps (like visual reminders for some of the spelling rules) and is just the right size for writing Although it could be used alone if you have a very great understanding of WRTR it's best used with the very thorough lesson plans of "Spell to Write and Read" It's meant for beginning primary grade students but you could use it for phonics remediation up through middle school It takes such a huge amount of work and planning off the shoulders of the instructor implementing this program! Don't forget to get one for each student as well as one for a teacher reference
