Sequential Spelling for Adults
As the teaching parent in our home, I took a fairly cavalier attitude towards spelling and frequently commented that learning to spell was archaic because there will always be ‘spell check.' Then my older children became volunteer EMTs in a rural community where reports were submitted by hand. What an eye-opening embarrassment! Happily, we had recently discovered Sequential Spelling, and even as old as they were, they started working their way through Book 1.

If we were faced with that same crisis today, we would use Sequential Spelling for Adults. Of course it uses the same word-family approach that's been so successful in the children's version, but Sequential Spelling for Adults features different words that build up more rapidly, and streamlined workbook pages that will quickly improve any teen’s or adult’s spelling skills.

Just like in the children's Sequential Spelling, words are taught in relationship to one another, both horizontally and vertically. The methodological sequencing, plus the immediate student self-correction, will help older students develop the skills necessary to become competent spellers. With 360 lessons, you can either double up and do two lessons a day to complete this book in a year, or take a more leisurely approach and plan on completing the book in two school years. For ages twelve and older.

Sample pages from Book 1 and Book 2

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.

For adults that need help spelling. January 12, 2015
Reviewer: Christine  
I bought this for my 10 year old that is very gifted in spelling. We have all the sequential spelling books and I thought this would be a challenger for her. I was very disappointed to find that it is really for adults that need help spelling. The rest of the books for sequential spelling are terrific.

Great Find! May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Nom  
The Sequential Spelling for Adults 1 and 2 is exactly what I was looking for. Our Jr. High age children love to read and are pretty good spellers. This is perfect for us, without overdoing it, to simply show us what words we need to focus on more. It's an inexpensive and convenient way to practice spelling at this stage.

Wonderful for natural spellers and older kids October 24, 2011
Reviewer: Dianna C from East Texas, United States  
My 12-year-old daughter, a fairly natural speller, has used Sequential Spelling off-and-on for some time. I found I was skipping many words for her, knowing full well that she already knew them and that she was getting bored with the constant repetition. This skipping around was making our spelling lessons tedious for me and frustrating for both of us, but the AVKO/Sequential Spelling approach works so well that I was conflicted over how to proceed.

This "for Adults" version has been a wonderful answer! It moves faster through the same word families as the complete "younger" program. We're both enjoying spelling again now that we're moving at a faster clip with less redundancy.

My younger daughter isn't quite so natural a speller (!), and definitely benefits from the repetition of the full-blown Sequential Spelling series. That may change later, but now I'll know where to head if that happens!

I'm loving this! September 26, 2011
Reviewer: Courtney  
I ordered Sequential Spelling for Adults for my 7th, 6th, and 4th grade sons.  We had been working through Sequential Spelling 1 and were seeing improvements in their spelling. I would like my oldest two sons to complete spelling by the end of next year, but I knew I couldn't achieve this goal with the original Sequential Spelling.  I did not want to change methods because this was the first that really worked for us.

I was delighted when I saw Sequential Spelling for Adults.  It uses the same method as the original Sequential Spelling, but moves through the words more quickly.  I was a bit nervous about placing my 9 year old in the program, but I really don't have time to give more than one spelling test a day.  He is keeping up with the program, and his two older brothers, quite well.

I think this is a wonderful program, and would recommend it to anyone with children in middle or high school who need to improve their spelling.
