A simplified, effective approach to phonetic spelling that is easy for the parent and student to use!
My Catholic Speller Series Nancy Nicholson
The My Catholic Speller Series provides a phonics-based approach to spelling in a format that is simple to teach and simple to learn, all while instilling a love for Our Lord and His Church. Parents have reported that their students, upon completion of the spelling series, were two years ahead of their grade level in spelling. The spelling words are chosen not only to demonstrate phonics word families, but also to expand vocabulary . Through a variety of ingenious exercises, the My Catholic Speller Series teaches vocabulary definitions even as it cements the student’s mastery of spelling and phonics. Children enjoy the lively content which gently connects their faith and everyday life. A unique feature in My Catholic Speller Levels B through F are apologetics mini-lessons designed around quotations that incorporate at least one of the spelling list words. The quotations are drawn from Scripture and the early Church Fathers. Each level features a variety of activities to keep the lessons interesting: identifying rhyming words, fill-in-the-blank, alphabetizing, crosswords, identifying words with common elements, “word math,” and many more creative activities. This easy-to-use, self-contained program includes all instructions with each lesson and a removable answer key in the back of the book. Economical—time saving—no need to purchase or refer to separate teacher’s manual or answer key! Softcover. 8½"×11" Spiral-bound for ease of use. Answer keys included.
