Product Description:

Many have benefited from the Spell to Write and Read program. These worksheets provide a ready-made venue for strengthening students' spelling skills in a variety of ways. These are meant to supplement and not replace the activities in the Wise Guide. Both are necessary. Skills covered in the worksheets include listening, punctuation, phonograms, a variety of word-building activities and more. While these worksheets can be used with older editions, they will most easily correlate with the 2015 edition of the Wise Guide.

Publisher Description:

Students practice their spelling words in a variety of meaningful lessons that build vocabulary and connect spelling with the grammar and language in which they are found.

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 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

How is this different from the s-2-w-&-r book, and I'm curious if this is the program I heard about where you learn reading principles through spelling? How are assessments organized (around a spelling principle or subject matter) and what kind of practice activities are included? I'm kind of worried about investing in such an intensive program--where do I start?

BEST ANSWER: SWR is a program based on teaching reading, writing, and spelling through phonograms and spelling rules. You have asked questions that would take a lot of explanation, so I would direct you to swrtrainingdotcom and the Facebook group Spell to Write and Read Support Group. They have articles explaining the program, what you need and how to get started. As far as price, this is absolutely the least expensive program you could find, and is the most comprehensive I have ever seen. No matter what program other people have been using, I have been able to explain reasons for things they have questions about in spelling and reading rules. The only items you would absolutely need are the WISE Guide, SWR manual, phonogram cards, and learning logs. The only thing I have to buy each year is a learning log. Works for all ages, all levels.
