The Traditional Spelling series is a comprehensive approach to teaching spelling and completes our Reading & Phonics program. Following our award-winning First Start Reading and Classical Phonics, the next step towards mastery of phonics is Traditional Spelling. Designed for students who have mastered reading “Consonant-Vowel-Consonant” words and their short vowel sounds, Traditional Spelling is intended to follow a phonics-based kindergarten program such as the Memoria Press First Start Reading program through Book D. The Traditional Spelling Book II Teacher Manual contains all the answers to the Traditional Spelling Book II Student Book and helps guide teachers through the program.
Required Supplements: Phonics Flashcards and Classical Phonics.
The Traditional Spelling Book II Teacher Manual contains general lesson overview guidelines and a sample lesson plan. Each lesson features the inset of the student guide, an introduction, teaching overview, definitions, word study questions, and guided student work. The appendix contains a spelling test form, spelling review games, spelling rules reference sheets, common English contractions, a phonics overview for the teacher, and a colorful letters key.
