The All About Spelling series brings together the three pathways to learning—visual (sight), auditory (sound), and kinesthetic (touch). This multisensory approach, combined with a built-in review system and reinforcement activities, ensures that your children retain what they learn and understand how to apply it in practical situations.
Level 1 helps your child build a strong foundation for spelling. Your child will learn the sounds of the first 32 phonograms (a letter or letter combination). Next, your child will learn how to hear each individual sound in a word, how to represent each of those sounds with a phonogram, and how to apply basic spelling rules. The main focus of Level 1 is to get children comfortable and proficient with spelling short vowel words.
