Spelling Workout Level C has all the components needed to lead students from simple sound-letter relationships to more complex spelling patterns. Modern Curriculum Press Spelling Workout is a phonics based program that uses reading passages and writing activities to give students valuable practice with their spelling words. Students first learn about the most basic of sound-letter relationships, and work up gradually to real complex spelling patterns. The series uses a simple and consistent layout, with word lists grouped around a single spelling rule. Exercises range from simply copying the words, to reading a passage and writing answers to questions. There are also fill in the blank exercises. The teacher’s edition does a great job suggesting flexible plans, detailing strategies, and giving dictation sentences. Fun riddles and puzzles make the lessons enjoyable and motivate student success. Students enjoy the exercises and teachers appreciate the clear and consistent format. The 36 lessons each focus on a spelling rule or pattern. Spelling Workout follows the same scope and sequence as the popular MCP Plaid Phonics.
At the start of every lesson, there is a short, interesting reading passage that uses some of the list words in context. There is a different spelling rule each time, with all the list words reflecting that phonics principle. Another facet that many teachers like is that the list words are given both in regular typeface and in perfect cursive, allowing students copy work to count for their handwriting practice.
Spelling Workout is designed to correlate well with Modern Curriculum Press Plaid Phonics.
