I’m a homeschool mom who uses All About Reading and All About Spelling, primarily. I’ve found these Spectrum workbooks to be extremely helpful - user friendly and precise. My girls ages 8 & 10 enjoy working out of them. I’ve purchased most of them, Spectrum Reading and Math included, at Office Depot.
Excellent book to suppkement what is taught in school. Provides specific spelling lists and teaches the strategies that allow young students to learn to correctly spell words the commonly used in reading and writting. Our local schools no longer teach spelling in the classroom. Phonetic spelling is accepted on any written work, as long as the teacher can figure out wgat the student meant to write. When the student reaches the middle grades, they are expected to miraculously kniw how to spell. Thank you Spectrum for another book to help students learn what they are missing in school, abd enjoy doing it.
As always spectrum did not let me down. My daughter is entering into second grade next week and worked on this throughout the summer break with little help from me. I know that she'll be ready for school and able to handle what her teacher teaches this year. It had a little bit of 1st grade review and then went right into new words, while doing it in a way that kept her from being frustrated.
I love spectrum workbooks. As a homeschooling mom it's really nice to be able to hand this to my kid and they can navigate it without many problems. The first half is review heavy with really basic words that I would consider late kindergarten and 1st grade level. Perfect for a kid who needs a little extra boost. I also really like how this book groups the spelling words. Instead of random words, they are grouped by similarities which allows for easier memorization. Besides being a little behind 2nd grade for the first half of the book, it's really nice. And the book itself is high quality and arrived free of damage.
