To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love it. It's thick with lots of pages. Each lesson gives you several options of learning (word finds, finish the sentence, fill in the blank stories, and just writing out the words). I homeschool and we do one page a day mon-thurs then test on Friday. Each lesson has 4 pages so this works great.
I love Spectrum workbooks and have recommended them to many people. I bought this book to get my son ready for 4th grade over the summer. I liked that each lesson introduces a new set of vocabulary words, which are then used in several writing exercises throughout that specific lesson. There are new words for each lesson and the writing exercises change as well, which helps keep the child engaged. I love that the book has the definitions of all the spelling words in the back. This helps children figure out the meaning of new words quickly.
Absolutely fabulous, exactly what we needed to aid in spelling for our 9 year old 4th grader. Came highly recommended and now that we have this, we recommend it too! Good for both homeschooling and supplemental to public school for struggling students.
This is a great tool for me to use for homeschooling my 8 year old son. One thing I dislike is that some of the activities are a little ridiculous what they're asking the child to do. Main example is that each lesson has it's own spelling list; however some activities ask that the child figure out the answers for the questions using all the spelling lists from all previous lessons. This makes it very difficult for my child, or even me, to answer the questions. It should definitely be limited to only the words on the spelling list dedicated to that specific lesson. Other than those activities, the book is good, and a great tool to practice spelling and writing.
The book came in excellent condition and the service was very quick! Spectrum mostly always has awesome books for teachers and here is just another one. Lots of works for students to discover and the exercises are extremely relevant to what I am trying to teach. The exercise are not trying to trick students but allows them to understand and dig in more depth! I would totally order again!
The spectrum grade 4 spelling workbook is the best spelling curriculum workbook I have found as a homeschool parent thus far. Spectrum challenges and matches grade requirements. It is pretty fun and manages to get my students to do the work and not complain. I would recommend or buy again.
