Spelling 2 Teacher Edition with CD 2nd Edition
The completely revised Spelling 2 Teacher's Edition (2nd ed.) is a critical piece of the spelling 2 educational materials, coordinating all instruction and activities. It contains a reduced copy of the student text with answer overprints as well as lesson notes to guide the teacher through the instruction of spelling patterns and rules using words in context, proofreading, dictionary skills, and writing activities. Lessons include a Christian worldview and present spelling as a vital tool in Christian communication. Each of the 32 weekly spelling lists is presented in a five-day lesson sequence. An appendix provides supplemental information to help the teacher with instruction and review.
At this level lessons reinforce phonetic spelling, concentrating on common spelling patterns. Word lists include high-frequency words, words with reliable spelling patterns and some irregular spellings. Activities include word sorting, word study, writing and proofreading.
Spelling lists are organized by common spelling patterns rather than thematically. The program uses the recall-study approach with a pretest, practice test, then final test. Each unit is taught in a five-day sequence. Bible word studies are included in each unit and a weekly journal idea incorporates journal writing into the curriculum. Dictionary, writing/proofreading and study skills are developed throughout the series. Home School Kits contain the Teacher's Edition and Worktext.
