    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.

    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

    It’s not hard to guess the connection – Hooked on Phonics; Hooked on Spelling. Just like its “kissing cousin,” Hooked on Spelling is fun, colorful, and easy-to-use. The general format of the program is familiar as well: Learn (a short 5-7 minute, computer-based lesson), Practice (5-7 minute segment with the engaging workbooks), and Play (another 5-7 minutes having fun with new skills). Each lesson ends with a celebration and a sticker on a progress chart. In fact, this celebration is part of the overall educational philosophy of the program which includes working side by side with your student, encouragement/praise, mastery, being patient, not overdoing it, working in a quiet place, employing real-world spelling activities, surrounding the child with words, and lastly (most importantly?) reading with the child every day. There are two levels: Yellow – roughly corresponding to the 1st grade level of HOP Learn to Read – and Red, corresponding to HOP Learn to Read 2nd grade. Program components for each level include a CD-ROM, a worktext, a spelling study card, a progress poster and stickers. The CD-ROM lessons (20 including reviews) each provide instruction plus interactive reinforcement. Worktexts are for practice and include exercises, reviews and family-time activities. Each word is written at least three times in this segment. The wipe-off Spelling Study Card is available for more practice and provides some guidance for effective mastery. Stickers applied to the Colorful Poster (11” x 7,” laminated) track your student’s progress. All instruction centers around the computer component and although the computer program is professional with good audio and practice, there is no way to skip forward through the lessons. If typing is a roadblock for the child, it may be frustrating. The Yellow level (six words per lesson) covers beginning consonant and rhyming word families, ending consonant sounds, short vowels, beginning and ending blends, word families with ending blends, “ch,” “sh,” “th,” and some irregular words. The Red level (eight words per lesson) covers short vowels vs. long vowels, blends vs. non-blends, “c” sounds, “g” sounds, “y,” plurals and other endings, and some irregular words. ~ Janice System Requirements: Windows 2000, XP or higher; Mac OS 10.1 or higher.

Covers are assorted bold colors and the whole thing is small enough to fit into a larger notebook, lapbook, or scrapbook when complete. – Jess

    When I'm reading, I often come to the end of a page and realize I have no idea what I just read. I was reading the words but was not processing anything. This book by James W. Sire teaches how to read in a way that will not only ensure understanding of the material, but will allow readers to perceive the worldview and reasoning behind the writing. The book is written by a Christian, and though specific guidelines for Bible-reading are not set down, the author states that learning to read other books well will naturally lead to a better understanding of the Bible. There's a conversational tone to the book, with anecdotes and examples of reading interspersed. As the author points out that worldviews and meanings are hidden in everything from advertisements to poetry to non-fiction books, he clearly explains how you can read and analyze to uncover these hidden aspects. Different genres of writing are split into different chapters and then the book shows how to analyze each type of writing to discover the worldview of the writer and the underlying message. There are chapters covering nonfiction, poetry, and fiction, and one that discusses how biographical, literary, historical, and intellectual writing affect the meaning of passages. Each chapter includes excerpts of actual passages in the specific genre so students can practice the reading techniques while they learn about them. A chapter of the book is also dedicated to giving tips on what and where to read. A reading list is provided that categorizes books and other works into different genres and worldviews. Reading these books will show students how the worldviews of the authors are depicted in the writing. This is a great book for showing students how to slow down and really absorb the information they are reading as well as analyze writing and identify themes or worldviews hidden within. 192 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Do you want to see improved spelling in your students' writing? Research shows that 90% of English text consists of just 1000 words. This book focuses on teaching the most commonly used and misspelled words and ensuring that students of all ability levels receive intense instruction on core words. The book is divided into four main parts; Incredible English, Spelling and Teaching, Recommended Teaching Techniques, and Spelling Lists.

    The Incredible English chapter lists rules for spelling and then lists exceptions to the rules. It also compares the difficulty of spelling other languages to spelling English and covers the history of the how the English language has evolved. It also gives arguments for and against spelling reform in a humorous manner.

    The Spelling and Teaching section discussing ways a spelling program can be transferred to writing. Many students spell words correctly on tests but then forget to use the correct spelling in their writing. This part of the book gives ideas to keep that from happening. It discusses the importance of good spelling and explains why schools do not do a better job teaching it. It talks about the different types of memory a student uses to assist with spelling and gives suggestions for improvement.

    Recommended Teaching Techniques is the section of the book that suggests a few teaching methods that provide the greatest amount of practice in the least amount of time. Daily Practice provides six guided practices per word per day, each in about thirty seconds. Homework provides eleven independent practices per word per day, each in less than one minute. Diction provides distributed practice and allows the teacher to continually reinforce spellings, homophones, punctuation, capitalization, and form. Personal Words provide an optional method for dealing with misspellings in student writing in an effective and flexible way.

    The Spelling Lists section includes the 1000 Word Core List. It provides lists for grade levels K-6 and pretesting, review testing, and post-testing to assess students' learning. It also includes spelling rules and lessons and worksheets that correspond with the lists. This instructional book also includes a word bank and other teacher resources like a step-by-step checklist and challenge spelling lists. ~ Rachel

    What are the names of your fingers? Where did you find your good luck charm? If you plant your heart, what might grow? What do your wings look like today? Why don't you ever run out of surprises? These questions and more are from a chapter called Questions to Ask Yourself. The last page is one to be ripped out and written on by you, the reader. This may be the most creative of all creative writing books out there. The author encourages you to pick and choose, skip around, and write notes on the pages you like or don't like. Parents and teachers could use this in so many ways, the possibilities are truly unlimited. Author Annie Burrows tells us that if you write, you're a writer. She says that reading will make you a better writer and that spelling mistakes have nothing to do with good writing. Writers have to write. Sometimes though we run out of ideas, everyone does.
