About Sequential Spelling
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 phonic 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 because when he immediately corrects his own mistakes he will learn and retain more. Everyday, 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.

The Most Commons Sense Program
This is by far the most common sense spelling program I have ever seen. And it is incredibly easy for a parent to use, with no CD, DVD, silly games, or rule cards to keep track of. If you were hoping for a book of spelling rules, you'll need to look elsewhere. The Student Response Book has blank columns for each daily test and makes this program super convenient, but the teacher's manual explains how to use notebook paper to accomplish the same thing.

Easily Adapted For A Variety Of Ages
Each level of Sequential Spelling consists of 180 days of lessons. If you find the list of 25 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. Samples of each level are available on-line. How I wish I had used this system with my own children; it is truly the only spelling program I have seen that makes absolute sense.

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.
