Spelling Power Word Bank Box with Blank Word Cards
Drill and review are the secret ingredients of spelling success. Spelling Power's word card activities make it easy and these blank cards are ready-to-use for many of those activities. The Word Bank Box is just the right size to accommodate the included set of blank word cards and the six tabbed divider organizers (daily, weekly, monthly, review, retired, blank). It could even take one more set of cards (if needed). The box is sturdy plexiglas with a black bottom and clear top. The set of 400 cards included (3.5 x 2) is color coded (100 each of yellow, green, blue, and pink). Overall box dimensions: 7.25 x 4.125 ~ Janice
The Spelling Power Word Bank Box is the perfect way to give your student a neat, organized way to make and store his own spelling study word cards. They'll be ready-to-use in one of Spelling Power's many skill-building activities or for easy drill and review of troublesome spelling words.
Six divider tabs allow your student to arrange and rearrange his word cards for Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Review study. There are separate tabs for the cards he has Retired (mastered) and his unused Blank cards. The four colors of the large (3.5" x 2") blank word cards allow you to assign a different color(s) to up to four students or by type of Word Card game.
The Spelling Power Word Bank Box is large enough to hold the spelling study words for the lesson on which your student is working. It comes with six divider tabs and 400 blank word cards in four different colors. Each box can serve up to four different students.
Your Spelling Power Word Bank Box is a sturdy, plexiglass two-piece box with removable lid that will stand up to years of use.
Additional Blank Word Cards may be purchased separately in a pack of 400 color-coded cards (100 of each color).
Hands-on learners appreciate being able to touch and feel, and these magnetic letter tiles are just what you need to complete many of the Activity Task Cards. The set of 192 magnetic (1" x 1.25") uppercase/lowercase letter tiles (red vowels, blue consonants) also includes apostrophes and hyphens. The sturdy, not-quite transparent, hinged-lid Organizer Box provides compartments with convenient rounded bottoms so picking up the tiles is easier. ~ Janice
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. Access to an online "Quick Start" video 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.
