Timberdoodle's review
 
Brilliant Methodology
I am an atrocious speller; don't even ask what atrocious looked like before I spell-checked this copy! But I find it interesting that I am not consistently a bad speller, as I do have some strengths. When I consider those strengths, I recall not phonics rules per se, but patterns that were diligently taught by some nameless teacher in my past. Having recognized the brilliance of that methodology, I was more than eager to examine the Sequential Spelling series.

Spell with Word Families
While we intuitively teach our children to read via word families (first at, then bat, cat, fat, and so forth), we rarely incorporate that same methodology in teaching spelling. Instead we shift to burdensome rules and endless lists of seemingly random words.

Easy to Use
Sequential Spelling is radically different as it is firmly entrenched in teaching using word families. The parent dictates a word, then the child writes it in his notebook. The child corrects any error right away before the next word is dictated, for when he immediately corrects his own mistakes, he will learn and retain more. Every day, every lesson is a test. That's it, that's the program. Your child will never be asked to study for a spelling test; the author believes that the tests should be a learning device, not a method of evaluation.
This common sense spelling program is incredibly easy for a parent to use.

Easily Adapted for a Variety of Ages
Each level of Sequential Spelling consists of 180 days of lessons. If you find the list of twenty-five words too much for your child, then do fewer words a day. While Level One can be used with a first-grader, it is equally effective with an older child who needs to build a solid spelling foundation. There is nothing juvenile about this program, so dive in at whatever level seems appropriate.

180 Daily Tests
Sequential Spelling eliminates the study-for-the-test-and-forget-by-Monday syndrome. Each of the seven levels has 180 daily tests of twenty-one words for a total of over 25,000 words!

Important Note: Sequential Spelling is not based on grade level. The sequences are based on building from easy words to advanced words, as from all to tall, stall, install, installment, installation. However, for some of you it will be helpful to walk through the simple placement test.

Additional Note: If you opt to use the DVD in conjunction with the Student Workbook for levels 1-5, please note that because of a few later changes to the workbooks there will be an occasional discrepancy between the word lists on the DVD versus the lists in the workbook. This will not affect the spelling exercises which are the core of the program, but can impact some of the peripheral activities such as crossword puzzles.
Sequential Spelling is a seven-level spelling program for the teaching of the patterns of English spelling within seven normal public school years, though many homeschoolers complete all seven levels at a much faster rate.

Each Sequential Spelling bundle comes with the teacherís guide and one student workbook! Extra copies of the student workbook are available separately.

Important Note: The sequences are not based on grade level. They are based on building from easy words to advanced words as from all to tall, stall, install, installment, installation. However, for some of you it will be helpful to walk through the simple placement test.

Love this September 16, 2014
Reviewer: Katie W.  
my son loves this and really teaches him to spell. Love the step by step each day. We usually do 2 spelling test a day. But he don't mind at all! It has really boosted his confidence in spelling. He almost always gets a 100% because of the we it is taught! Wonderful and would recommend!

I highly recommend this more September 8, 2014
Reviewer: Johanna S.  
I highly recommend this more hands on approach to the spelling kit Timberdoodle offers. My daughter was getting frustrated with the DVD portion of Sequential Spelling but now that she gets to do an activity per lesson to practice, her spelling has improved!

Tests don't match February 7, 2012
Reviewer: Veronica Gilmore from Lynchburg, Virginia United States  
My son used to be an awesome speller until we tried this. The tests don't even match up in the book & answer keys and they wait way too long to test. I even purchased the cd-rom which helped a little in getting the lessons done easier but still the program is poorly designed especially for the price.

Is there a zero star option? October 26, 2011
Reviewer: Patricia Shenkel from Grain Valley, MO United States  
This was such a disappointment.  I get the idea, build mulitple words from simple bases-whoo hoo!  It doesn't cut the mustard, Don McCabe.  Too many words crammed into each day to get a firm grasp of each and some don't come up in everyday conversation, or rarely IF EVER.  The Spelling I used before, was way more expensive, but it did far more than crossword, word search and word scramble it's way through the entire year.  I miss my Bob Jones!!!!!!!
