Creative Resources for Individualized Spelling Programs, a parent/teacher manual, guides you in the practical system of keeping spelling notebooks rather than using workbooks. This allows you to focus on the words or spelling rulings which are troublesome to the student or which are drawn from other subjects the child is currently studying. Exercises are divided into learning modalities: e.g., drawing a picture with spelling words (kinesthetic), spelling with eyes closed then looking to verify an answer (auditory/visual), and other strategies. Guidelines for basic phonics rules, a weekly schedule, activities, and games are included, as well as the list of the 1,000 most common words in our language, ranked in frequency order. Includes a bibliography and reproducible sheets for students’ records.
