At the heart of this program is THE POWER SPELLING PLAYBOOK–36 illustrated, reproducible lessons that teach students how to use seven Power Spelling Skills and Memory Tools to organize and learn words and retain spelling for a lifetime. These skills and tools include:
The lessons are reinforced and enriched by POWER SPELLING GAMES, POWER SPELLING SPECIAL LESSONS, and the POWER SPELLING BOOK OF LISTS. First, you′ll find 36 reproducible games–one for each lesson–with a simple guide to game play. Each game is formatted like a spelling list so that every word can be remembered by using one or more of the Memory Tools learned in the Playbook. Also included are "suggested solutions" for each game.
Next you′ll find four special lessons to add spark to spelling: Do Geese See God? and Other Palindromes, plus Anagrams and Acronyms; Aardvarks, Llamas, and Other Double–Letter Words; a visual grammar lesson; and Discovering What′s Inside the Amazing Dictionary. These are followed by the Book of Lists, a unique collection of over 2,500 example words which is based on the seven Memory Tools and packed with word list that will help students use their hearing, seeing, feeling, and creative memory to detect and understand words.
Better still, POWER SPELLING is completely flexible. It can be used successfully with students of all abilities, individuality, with a tutor, with small groups of students, or with an entire class. Moreover, the 36 lessons with games can serve as a complete, yearlong spelling program in themselves or be used to supplement any spelling curriculum already in place!
