    These cards link the most basic fixed combinations of letters in English with the sounds they make. The back of each card gives detailed information for presenting the phonogram. To avoid confusion, the author suggests you not use other phonogram cards. [Curious to know which two phonograms are in the 72 sets (used in other similar programs) but not in these 70 sets? The "missing" phonograms are "gu" and "our."]

    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 Sanseri's 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.

    You ever get the feeling that everyone else makes learning a lot more fun? This book will help you make it enjoyable, too. Oh, and provide for the different learning styles of your children, illustrate the power of play, and encourage family togetherness. Although the activities are called "educational games," the title is a bit misleading; the book is really a collection of learning techniques and activities that can be used with all sorts of subjects. "Field-tested" and contributed by homeschooling moms on an email loop (moms using Spell to Write and Read), some are specific to that program and all other suggestions have variations applicable to SWR. However, there are many with general applications as well, and a section on Games to Purchase (mom and kid tested). Each activity/game is laid out in a homeschool-friendly fashion. Age/grade level, materials needed, step-by-step directions and, often, illustrations are provided for each. Trampoline Games (for your active learner), Clothesline Cards, and Musical Learning are a few of the titles in the Games to Make at Home section. ~ Janice

    Just as literacy suffered in the last century when the school systems abandoned phonics instruction, many people contend that handwriting suffered by the same educational system's insistence on beginning with manuscript handwriting. "Cursive first" is their rallying cry! Wanda Sanseri became convinced of this approach and has encouraged it as part of her Spell to Write and Read program. The Cursive First program was developed by Elizabeth FitzGerald to be used either with the SWR program or as a stand alone program of handwriting instruction.

    The "program" is comprised of a Teacher's Manual, Practice Sheets, and the Cursive Phonogram Card Set. The Teacher's Manual is designed to convince you of the merits of starting with cursive. But it also includes information for preparing your student, specific "how-to," directions for using the Practice Sheets/Card Set and a "troubleshooting guide" how to detect visual and perceptual problems. The reproducible (for families/classroom) Practice Sheets get quickly down to the business of practice no cutesy graphics. Lowercase letters are taught separately from uppercase and connections are taught from the very beginning in the natural context of multi-letter phonograms. Although solid and dotted line models are provided, the student is quickly weaned from tracing to more active writing utilizing narrow ruled, dotted lines for practice. The Cursive Phonogram Card Set (yellow cardstock, each page to be cut into fourths) includes instructional dialogue for writing the phonograms on one side and a sample of cursive writing on the other. Both numerals and the first 26 phonograms are included. Laminating these would preserve their use through multiple children.

    This 2-DVD set is a seminar-type summary of Wanda Sanseri's approach to conquering the twists and turns of learning to read and spell the English language. In her warm, gentle style she leads her students through the basic skills – learning the 70 phonograms and the 28 spelling rules as she exemplifies her "simultaneous, multisensory instruction" methodology. Although she focuses on Core Words – 80% of the words used for writing and reading – she challenges her students to "Think to Spell." This last technique involves determining syllabification and remembering spelling rules in order to attempt difficult or unknown words. This set could be used either as teaching aimed directly to the student as a companion to the SWR program or to prepare the teacher.

    This small, unassuming text was, at one time, the favored primer for learning the basics of reading. While some things have changed over the years, there is still much about the English language that has remained the same – and this reprint of the 1777 primer retains the original text with only a few changes throughout. These changes include the modernization of archaic word usage, updating the spelling of some words (like using 's' instead of 'f'), syllabication that has been updated for modern times, updated alphabet rhymes, and the inclusion of 70 basic phonograms, 20 basic spelling rules, a list of ninety-nine most frequently used words and the "I Can Read a Book" story section. This edition retains period artwork and illustrations throughout, and includes Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, The Lord's Prayer, The Ten Commandments, a rhyming alphabet, two catechisms, Bible questions, a dialogue between Christ, youth and the devil, and the words of wisdom a man left his nine children before being martyred. Wanda Sanseri has also added nine easy-to-read stories utilizing high-frequency words taken from Spell to Write and Read. The quality, hardcover binding will survive the use of many children. 118 pgs. – Zach

    A creative, interactive, hands-on approach to vocabulary! What better way to retain the learning of new words? Using index cards, a file box, and a good dictionary, this approach is a welcome departure from the typical workbook fare. And, subtitled: Help for Reading, Writing, Spelling and S.A.T. Scores, it's obvious from looking at this book that it would, indeed, do just that! How? By teaching the roots of the English language found in Greek and Latin. Since the majority of our words are rooted in these classical languages, mastering these roots is a key that will open the door to understanding a myriad of words! The creative activity suggestions in this book could become the basis for wonderful unit studies as well.

    Four years after using this book to learn to read at age 4, our twins would still take this book off the shelf and re-read the silly stories that made learning to read immediately rewarding. It is a phonics-based, non-consumable book authored by Siegfried Engelmann using the DISTAR method. Faced with two small children eager to read like their older sisters, but who were not ready for the more intensive writing and spelling accompanying most other reading programs, I was at a loss. All they needed at this tender age were enough decoding skills to enable them to read. We had already covered letter sounds (via song), so the twins literally zipped through the early lessons and quickly digested blends, vowel sounds, and digraphs, thoroughly enjoying every lesson. In fact, they begged for "extra" lessons, anxious to get to the next story! Large, bold type assures learning without eye strain. This volume filled a need in our own family and, judging from the numerous requests/recommendations by our customers, has done so for others as well.

    The Combo kit includes all Level 1 components plus Instructor's 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 Instructor's 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.

     Self-described as Charlotte Mason-flavored, this is language arts curriculum with a Biblical emphasis. As a starting place for each weekly lesson, students will read a continuing story about friends Micah and Claire and their Sunday School experiences. Each week follows the same pattern of activities: Day 1, read the weekly story; Days 2-3, learn topics in writing, grammar and punctuation; Day 4, write responses to a prompt (alternating between picture study, poetry and a Psalm); and Day 5, work on spelling and vocabulary and build a dictionary. Brief assessments are provided quarterly. The fourth quarter is designed for review. Starting with Level 2, students are introduced to punctuation, grammar & writing. students will learn about nouns, compound words, subjects/predicates; possessive nouns; combining sentences; commas; interjections; action verbs; homophones; synonyms/antonyms and specific verbs such as be, has and see and pronouns like this and that. Biblical themes and assignments (such as memorizing verses from 1 Corinthians 13 alongside Micah and Claire) are used throughout. Level 3 will further strengthen previous reading, observation and communication skills, and begin writing paragraphs. Level 4 (expected late 2018) will strengthen previous skills and add study in noun types, verb tenses, mechanics and write compositions.

      This is a combined student and teacher consumable book. On the student pages, teacher notes are highlighted and kept minimal. While designed for you and the student to work along together, this text provides additional direction in the front matter and in the Teacher’s Aid section (about 100 pgs) in the back. This section includes dictionary pages to copy (or you can print off from the publisher’s web site); optional games to practice different language skills; spelling practice ideas; sight words alphabet practice; copywork practice; and grammar study sheets. You’ll want to provide more reading practice opportunities: a template to record these and a recommended Master Books reading list is included. Scriptures are from the NASB. Non-reproducible, consumable and 3-hole punched.

      Master Books recommends beginning this series after Foundations Phonics and Basic Language Skills. However, to select a starting place, the general expectation is that the student’s skills should be comfortably at grade level (in reading, writing, and in handwriting). 

    Approx 476 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

    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 group's 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 week's spelling list. If you've done the math, you know there are only 24 lists total, which isn't 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

    If you have used and liked Sing, Spell, Read & Write Level 1, here's 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 didn't 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, teacher's manual for cursive writing, a dry erase marker, and a miniature dry marker eraser. This program is easy to use, and there aren't 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 teacher's 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

    As you might have already guessed from the evocative title, this is a vocabulary book centered on Greek and Latin root words. There are 36 units that can be used one per week or in concentration. It's a fun, interactive type of book and a good precursor to the more studious Vocabulary from Classical Roots series. Master word lists, along with their roots, are provided up front as a handy reference and summary. It includes several ideas for activities for each study. Every unit contains three reproducible pages for the student, introducing ten vocabulary words and tracing their definitions back to a common meaning. The pages are graphically stimulating and motivating to complete, rather than a dry, fill-in-the-blank presentation. I especially like the little symbol on the upper right-hand corner of each student page which gives a visual reminder of the root from which all these words spring. As an example, the first root studied is the Latin "foli," meaning "leaf." After students match the definitions to words printed on an assortment of leaf shapes, they make up sentences for each and, optionally, with string, tape, and a twig, make a foli mobile. The second student page for this unit is entitled "Comic Re-Leaf." It has a circle of cartoon visuals depicting the meaning of each vocabulary word with little pictures, characters, and word bubbles. In the center are the ten vocabulary words to write on each. For reinforcement, students then turn their paper over and write the definitions for the ten words from memory. The last page "Turn Over a New Leaf" presents news headlines incorporating the vocabulary words. Students have to write the first sentence of each news story, defining the vocabulary words. For example, the first sentence of a story for the headline "Unicorn Uncovers Unusual Unifoliate Under Uncle's Umbrella" might read, "Yesterday, a young unicorn playing in the park moved the umbrella of a family member only to find a rare species of plant having only one leaf." After this, the student is told to choose one of the headlines and illustrate it. This approach to learning vocabulary has something to offer for all learning styles, including the hands-on learner.
