Description

Takes a whole-word approach to spelling, disregarding most spelling rules and instead focusing on presenting common core words as complete entities. This method helps students develop a correct visual image of words, moving away from short-term memorization typically associated with tests. Sitton Spelling emphasizes long-term mastery and eliminates the traditional Monday-to-Thursday study schedule with a test on Friday.



The sourcebook units are divided into two parts: Build skills and word experiences and Assess words and skills. The former teaches students how words function by exploring their correct usage. In the latter, students receive specific spelling words based on their performance in whole-class story and dictation tests, where the words they miss become their spelling words for further practice.



This program places a significant emphasis on writing as a means of assessment, integrating proofreading to identify new spelling words. It also connects spelling with vocabulary, literature, phonics, usage, and writing to enhance students' overall language and word skills, thereby improving their writing abilities.



Detailed teacher instructions highlight primary concepts and provide guidance on chalkboard use and questions to ask students. Unit Assessments track students' progress in memorizing the 1200 core words included in the program. Reproducible worksheets and five larger classroom word posters are included.



This Level 3 program is designed for 3rd-grade students and is in its 3rd Edition. It consists of 424 pages and is spiral-bound for ease of use. Please note that this item is available for purchase by Homeschools only.
