    The Combo kit includes all Level 1 components plus Instructors Directions for Kindergarten, two consumable student worktexts, and a set of six phonetic storybook readers. The student worktexts are totally revised, even down to the theme and names. With a train theme, the All Aboard and On Track workbooks teach alike and different, classification, completing a pattern, tracing, following directions, reading readiness skills, letter recognition, letter sounds, manuscript writing, word blending, vocabulary, beginning reading, comprehension, spelling, listening, and speaking. On Track also includes ten tear-out, color, and read storybooks. The six phonetic storybook readers are correlated to the instruction, reinforcing the phonics, reading, and writing skills taught. One colorful reader covers each short vowel, plus a sixth reader with combined short vowel words. Student materials are also available separately for teaching more than one student with the program. For parents who did not purchase the Combo kit initially, the Instructors Directions for Kindergarten is not available separately; however, the publisher says that you should not need it. Read on for a full description of the Level 1 kit. We are again able to offer the workbooks and readers for the Sing, Spell, Read & Write kits; see below for Kindergarten components.

    Considering the approach, ease of use, content, child-appeal, benefits, effectiveness and cost of all the phonics programs we were familiar with, Sing, Spell, Read & Write was our choice for personal use. We have used several programs and read about many others. Although we didnt use this program in total with our children (because we extended the spelling, used italic handwriting instead of ball and stick, etc.) we did find it the most used and useful of those we tried. AND the results were wonderful! If youre looking for something to really lay it all out for you, something that works, is easy to use, and will have your child singing the letter sounds in days, followed closely by actually reading...this is what we recommend! Here are some of our reasons:

    The raceway theme is very appealing and motivating to children, who love tracking their success via race car around a track as they complete the 36 steps to independent reading.

    The songs are unquestionably contagious - children will sing and sing and sing and learn their letter sounds, long and short vowel sounds, blending vowels and consonants, and digraphs almost effortlessly - and enjoy it! That is, if you can bear to listen to it sung over and over, multiplied by x times the number of children using it throughout the years.

    The 17 phonetic, full-color storybooks cover all 36 steps, providing immediate, rewarding reinforcement for the decoding skill just learned. This makes good sense.

    The games are not just fluff, but real fortification of phonetic skills. They are more fun, however, if you can play with more than one child.

    The teacher training videos included in the set will greatly aid you in understanding/teaching the phonics program - and give you the confidence to do it!

    Included is a complete, phonetic spelling program dove-tailing with the phonetic constructs being learned and a complete handwriting program (if you use ball and stick manuscript).

    thick, four-color workbooks include grammar and creative writing

    phonics songs are contained in both cassette and CD formats

    The two workbooks and the assessment book included in the set are the only consumables in the program. Replacements must be ordered from the publisher.

    To be honest, we have just a few quibbles :

    1. Some of the tapes/voices are not as clear or distinct as a perfectionist might demand. Some may go a little too fast for your taste - notably the ferris wheel song used to practice blending sounds smoothly. For us, this was a plus, since we kept at it until we could keep up with the song, resulting in perfect blending!

    2. The prizes included are...well...rather cheesy at best and who needs 4 or 5 yo- yos, several plastic magnifiers, multiple thin plastic bracelets, and numerous plastic sack puppets? When using with one child, one of each would do nicely. To alleviate this, see our special offer below.

    If you have used and liked Sing, Spell, Read & Write Level 1, heres the next step for you. Along with reviewing the phonics skills learned in Level 1, this program also integrates vocabulary, spelling, reading comprehension, grammar, proofreading, handwriting (manuscript and cursive) and reference skills. This level uses the phonics CD from the level 1 program; there are no CDs in this set. The Level 1 audio CD can be ordered separately if you didnt use the Level 1 program (see Level 1 materials). This is the kit for individual tutoring and it contains Grand Tour workbooks I and II, answer keys for each workbook, teachers manual for cursive writing, a dry erase marker, and a miniature dry marker eraser. This program is easy to use, and there arent a lot of cluttered plans to follow. Directions for everything except the handwriting are printed right in the student books, which are colorful and kid appealing. These consumable books are divided into 18 chapters each. Grand Tour I covers in order a short vowel review; two-vowel words; silent e words, c as s words; āy, y as ī, ge, gi, gy as soft g and y as ē; ed = t and ed = d; ed says ed, silent e, double last consonant before adding a suffix; or words; sh and ch words; er, ir, ur words; th & tch words; ow, ou, and ew words; qu & wh words; and ar words. Grand Tour II includes: aw and au; ing, ang, ong, ung, oy and oi; ōō; tion; silent gh words; ar = or and dge = j; ue, x = cks, ie=ē, eā = ā; ea = ĕ, ear = er, changing f to ves; long I & o, u = ŏŏ, air; ui = ōō, or = er; contractions, āre = air, a = ŏ; c as s, silent w; silent k & l; silent b, g and h; silent t, qu = k, ph = f; ch = k, ss = sh; rule breakers & whacky words, ch = sh, ous; and multi-syllable words. Lessons include a spelling and phonics rule, and a section on language arts skills. The concepts are accompanied by plenty of practice, which includes fill-in the blank, word scrambles, word searches, crosswords, proofreading, etc. There is no shortage of spelling words in this program. Word lists are printed on all of the pages except handwriting practice and proofreading pages. There are over 1400 spelling words in the level 2 program!

    The answer keys are black and white. They are small format student pages (4 per page) with the answers filled in.

    Block manuscript is practiced in Grand Tour I. Letters are presented and practiced in ABC order. The teachers instructions are scripted so there is no room for error when teaching handwriting. Cursive is introduced and practiced in Grand Tour II. The back of each workbook has a high gloss finish and can be written on with the dry erase marker for practice. There are also handwriting practice pages in the lessons. This Homeschool edition of the program does a grand job of teaching the basics for spelling, reading and writing. Each workbook is 176 pages and is not reproducible. ~ Donna

    These sturdy cards provide visual memory cues for the 28 rules taught in Spell to Write and Read. The front side provides a visual representation of the rule while the back states the rule itself. For example, the back side of the card for rule 20 states: X is never directly before S (boxes, excel). There is an /s/ sound in X. The visual reminder is the letters XS circled with a slash though it.

    Produced with Wanda Sanseris permission but by a different publisher. CDs provides a reading of all lists in the W.I.S.E. Guide in the manner outlined in the Guide word, sentence, word. These can be a tremendous help to the busy homeschooling mom working to implement the SWR program. After the initial introduction of the spelling list to her students, each student can review the list on his own time and at his own pace just provide the student with a headset and show them how to use the pause button. The lists are contained on five CDs with the sixth CD containing the lists from the diagnostic tests.

    By the same author as Spelling Plus, Susan Anthony, comes this program specifically for high school students. This is a one-year review of words most frequently misspelled by high school students, and in fact they account for over half of that groups misspellings. This list of 388 words overlaps with the word list in Spelling Plus, so if your student has completed Spelling Plus there is no need for them to complete Spell Well. This course incorporates the same techniques set forth in Spelling Plus and is a pretty straightforward approach to learning to spell words. A list of the 388 words in order of frequency of misspelling is given, followed by pages with the list broken down into 20-word groups for students to keep for review and spelling lists for daily practice. Suggestions for daily practice follow a specific formula - spell the word and read it, trace the word and read it, cover the model/write the word and read it, check from the model, check and correct the word you wrote, and close your eyes/spell the word and say it. Give a test on Friday and place misspelled words on the blank lines of student lists for repeated practice. Suggested dictation sentences are listed at the back of the book for use with each weeks spelling list. If youve done the math, you know there are only 24 lists total, which isnt enough to do a new list each week for an entire school year. The author suggests that you use holiday weeks for review testing and additional study of difficult words. The goal of this program is mastery, which is the ability to spell a word correctly every time. By following the procedures in this book, students will practice the correct words in a way that should cement the spellings in their mind. ~ Donna

    An intensive, multisensory phonics program, using a phonogram approach similar to The Writing Road to Reading. The main flaw we find in WRR is the difficulty homeschoolers find in implementing it without additional instructional materials that can be difficult to obtain. This book, authored by Bonnie Dettmer, is very simple to use, with clear directions for the teacher. Beginning with the 26 alphabet phonograms, all 72 basic phonograms (symbols for sounds) are taught. It incorporates handwriting and spelling also, reinforcing the phonograms as they are taught. Handwriting begins with the teaching of the letter sounds. Spelling instruction begins after the first 52 phonograms are introduced. Gradually, other language skills are added, such as writing complete sentences, adding affixes to words, and contractions. Reading is introduced only after students are able to construct original sentences. The program, encased in a sturdy three-ring binder, includes a set of basic phonogram cards, a CD containing the phonogram sounds, and the Spelling Scale For Home Educators. Each of these can also be purchased separately.

    While it may sound ambitious to think your child can learn letter sounds, letter recognition, blending sounds, reading, writing, spelling and typing all in one program, this well-produced and engaging software may help them do just that. It is made up of two CD-ROMs: Read, Write & Type! and Spaceship Challenge. Read, Write & Type! is the core of the program and provides the instruction, while Spaceship Challenge provides assessment. There are 40 lessons in Read, Write & Type! with a new letter or sound introduced in each one until children have learned the basic 40 speech sounds in English. These sounds include 21 which are represented by one consonant, 5 represented by two consonants (sh, th, ch, wh, and ng), the short and long sounds of each vowel, and then oo as in both look and tool, ou as in loud, and aw as in hawk. The lessons are grouped into levels where four letters or sounds are learned at each level. If you follow the plan provided, children will complete one level in Read, Write & Type! before they switch to Spaceship Challenge for testing on what theyve learned (starting after Level 2). The lessons are based around games, so learning is a fun and interactive experience. When you begin the program, the user can view the introduction to learn the back-story and be introduced to the characters (or storytellers). Most of the time the screen you will see includes a keyboard with keys divided under right and left houses and two little hands in the corners. The player also sees that each of the letters (and corresponding storyteller) live in a key shown on the animated keyboard. Above the keyboard, the scene changes as the user plays different games. In the introduction Vexor, a nasty virus, comes to town and steals all the letters from the animated keyboard. Its up to the player and the two talking hands to work together to win all of the letters back. As the player begins each round, they see which letter Vexor will offer to give back, pending the players performance on the games. The player is instructed on how to type that letter on the keyboard, and the sound of the letter is pronounced (letters found on the left-hand side of the keyboard within easy reach are the first to be introduced). The player then plays a series of games with Vexor to try and win the letter. These are based heavily on sound and ask the child to associate the sound with a picture and determine if the sound is made when saying the name of the object in the picture. Different games test the players ability to identify the sound at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of words. Players are constantly encouraged to say the name of the pictures or the sounds of the letters out loud as they type to engage their eyes, ears, mouths and fingers to learn the letters and sounds. After they play the letter/sound games with Vexor, they must help the letters storyteller get to the Story Tree by typing the letters they hear pronounced by an animated mouth. At the Story Tree, the mouth again pronounces the sounds of letters, and later words and simple sentences, as they type to complete the story. The games are different in Spaceship Challenge, although the emphasis is still on recognizing sounds and matching to letters. In the Sound Game, a picture shows one of three different monitors, and the player will identify the sound at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of the word pictured. The Reading Game tests reading comprehension by asking the player to match the sentence or word to one of the pictures shown below. In the Spelling Game, a picture is shown and the word is pronounced, and the player is asked to type in the word correctly. If the player completes these tasks at or above the threshold for passing, they move on to the next level in Read, Write & Type! Additional fun reinforcement activities include the Power Fountain game which reinforces typing accuracy and speed, and a simulated e-mail area, where children can type and send messages (a selection of stored responses are sent in return). The binder that contains the software also includes plenty of help and teaching suggestions for the parent. This includes an overview of the program, a scope and sequence, suggestions for students of different ages/abilities, explanations of the games in the software, a description and suggestions for using the printable materials found on one of the CDs and the supplementary materials included, and a detailed instructional sheet on each letter and sound produced. All in all, this program has some good things going for it. The software is well-produced, not cheesy, and the sounds that are pronounced are clear and easy to understand. Because the emphasis is on learning the sounds, not just letter recognition (players are even asked to type fffff, not F), this aids them in learning to sound out and recognize words later on. The games are fun to play and motivational, and the range of supplementary materials included and available (some on their website) round out the program to include non-computer time. Additionally, children will get plenty of typing practice with no pressure for speed, which gives them a leg up on children who dont learn to type until they are older. While I wouldnt use this in place of a phonics program, it is a meaty supplement that may be best used with a no-frills instruction book like How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, Reading Made Easy or The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading and/or with phonics workbooks (to reinforce writing skills which are not used as much in the software). This will provide practice theyll want to do! Please note that this is the 2000 edition of the program; the newest version is only available from Talking Fingers as a download.System requirements: Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista (but not Windows 7); Macintosh 7.5-9.2 or OS X Classic. - Jess

    Homonyms are those tricky, little (and sometimes not so little) words that sound alike but are spelled differently and mean different things. They slip unnoticed through spell-checkers and often through us but theyll come back to haunt our students in standardized testing and in upper level writing. In our day when spell checkers are everywhere, learning to spell through homonyms makes sense; wonderful, practical sense. Welcome to Spelling Made Easy. Designed for middle school students just when theyre discovering the safety net of spell checkers its also after theyve graduated from most phonics-based spelling programs. This program is the perfect follow-up especially if you have a student who is still somewhat of an amateur speller. Organized so it can be used as either a one-year or a two-year program; it really is easy. About 700 homonyms are divided into two-or three-word groups 290 groups in all. Ten groups together some 20+ words constitute a lesson. Lessons are taught either weekly (one year plan) or bi-weekly (two year plan) and involve copying words and definitions into a spelling notebook, doing crossword and word search puzzles, and writing paragraphs using the words. This consumable worktext provides all you need for the course. Each lesson is provided with word lists, assignment schedules for either one year or two years and four different puzzles. Tests arent specifically scheduled (assessment is the writing assignment) but could be added. Theres a lot of variety in the writing assignments: newspaper article, quatrain (four-line poem), paragraphs, telling about a painting or picture, limerick, and many others. A reduced-size answer key is provided for all the puzzles plus an alphabetical order of all the homonyms (and near homonyms).

    This seems a fairly unique approach and one that is bound to provide just what middle schoolers need the most. I, for one, would be thrilled to have a whole host of homeschoolers prepared to make the right choice between your and youre not to mention instance and instants. Lets Do This! ~ Janice

    Technological Spelling Bee into the twenty-first century! Thats essentially the appeal and value of this program. Spelling lists you build (more on this later) can be tested, retested, and then tested again. Or perhaps I should say the lists can be played, replayed, and then replayed again. Yes, that does sound much better! You build the play lists yourself from . . . well, from practically anything spelling programs, reading content, missed words in a writing assignment, Greek/Latin root words, or perhaps a geography/history lesson. Dad might even want to borrow it to practice up on challenging words in a particular field. Once built, the student plays through the list, seeing and listening to the word and then typing it after it fades from view. Missed words are added to the queue so the student can go back over them. Pronunciations are grabbed from the internet so the homeschooled student will never have the embarrassing realization that theyve been pronouncing ee-pit-toh-me as ep-ih-tome. And, by the way, definitions for each word can also be grabbed from the internet. Students can work independently to practice spelling plus you have the advantage of a multisensory approach (hear, see, feel). If, by chance, you have a student determined to qualify for the Scripps National Spelling Bee then this little gem is the perfect vehicle for all those hours of preparatory work. Although the program can easily be handled by a younger student keep in mind there are no cutesy graphics typically provided for kids. Works with Windows XP, VISTA, and Windows 7. ~ Janice
