Students who complete this workbook will be better prepared to spell words that have difficult sounds or endings. This book also provides instruction in key suffixes and English, Latin, and Greek prefixes. Later units teach students how to discriminate between synonyms and how to change accents. Phonics principles focus on vowel sounds, “er,” “sk,” “k,” and “sh” sounds. Vocabulary-building is emphasized through contextual exercises as well as a lesson dealing with word meanings. Word-bank, crossword, fill-in-the-blank, and other exercises are included to help students gain familiarity with how words and sentences are constructed.
Test sheets are included at the back of the book. With 36 units and 5 lessons per unit, the text is designed to be used daily over a 36 week period.
