Spelling Power

all you need is 15 minutes a day and this book!

   Spelling Power is a multisensory, multilevel, individualized spelling program designed to help your student master spelling skills in just 15 minutes per day. This 15 minutes requires approximately five minutes of your time (per student) and little or no lesson planning. Your student will typically use this 15 minute spelling session to complete three basic activities: pretesting from organized word lists, studying only those words he needs to learn, and participating in skill building activities.
5 Minutes Pretesting Organized Word Lists
     You will spend the first five minutes of each session retesting or pretesting words from Spelling Power’s Flow-Word-Lists. The Flow-Word Lists contain the 5,000 words most frequently used and misspelled by children and adults. These words are organized into eleven levels of frequency. Each of these eleven levels is further divided into word groups based on phonetic principles and spelling rules. Your student will master these words because a series of six reviews is built into each level. Spelling Power’s research-proven, special testing procedures begin the learning process.
5 Minutes Studying Misspelled Words
     Following the teaching-test session, your student will study (on his own) those words that the pretest or his daily writing have shown he needs to learn. Your student will usually complete this activity in under five minutes. He will use Spelling Power’s ten special, multisensory study steps to master each of his personal spelling words. This process is completed on forms which guide your student through the steps proven most effective for learning how to spell words.
 
5 Minutes Building Specific Spelling Skills
     Your student will spend the remaining five or so minutes of the daily spelling session involved in activities and playing games designed to teach, reinforce, and drill spelling words and skills. The "Games and Activities" section of the Spelling Power manual provides over 134 directions and ideas for hands-on games and activities which can be used during this portion of the spelling session. All of these teaching activities are indexed, so you will find it’s quick and easy to locate games which will benefit your student.
   Spelling Power gives you everything you need to provide your student (from age eight to college level) a comprehensive spelling program. Even if you are new to teaching, you will find Spelling Power’s easy-to-understand, detailed, step-by-step directions show you exactly how to teach the program and how to adapt it to your student’s specific needs. You will find the “Quick Start Steps” and the in-depth material to which those steps direct you will make using Spelling Power easy and hassle-free, but, most importantly, effective!
