Though it is well known our English language has many ‘exceptions to the rule’ with regards to spelling, it is also a wonderfully well-ordered and structured language. Being a language based on sounds which form words, phonics is the most sound and efficient way to learn how to read and spell.
Developed especially for our American customers Phontastic Spelling Tactics uses phonics as its base to teach and reinforce spelling to children from the age of 9 and up. It’s activities are many and varied all the while underpinned by the spelling rules. The rules are taught clearly and put into practice through copywork, dictation and spelling exercises. Lessons are short and to the point.
The carefully selected copywork passages aim to utilise words and rules that have been taught in other lessons, and are taken from a variety of literature ranging in interest from science, history, fiction, classic novels and even old fashioned recipes!
Recommended for children who have completed a formal phonics program, are reading well but need further practice with the rules to continue to reinforce spelling. Also good for children who have not learned to read or spell using a phonics based program, but are too old to start one. Or just for older students who still need practice in spelling, but are bored with lists and traditional style spelling programs.
Permission is granted in the ebook for the parent to make unlimited copies of the lessons for all their children, so you will only need one book per family. One year’s work consisting of 145 lessons at a pace of four per week (five in the final week). Answers to all the lessons are included. 175p
