Spelling Workout Level H 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.
MCP Spelling Workout - Grade 8
Your student will have to write in his or her daily life both in college and beyond, so being able to spell with proficiency is very important. While giving your student a strong Spelling foundation may seem like a serious matter, the actual instruction you provide can be fun and engaging. In fact, it should be!
The Modern Curriculum Press (MCP) Spelling Workout is a program designed to be highly engaging by requiring active participation. Instead of simply reading and memorizing words, your child will learn how to predict Spelling patterns with the help of some hands-on activities. The MCP Spelling Workout curriculum includes riddles, puzzles, writing prompts and cross-curricular reading assignments that make Spelling an exciting subject.
By the time your student reaches Grade 8, which is the final installment in the MCP Spelling Workout program, he or she will be ready to take on more complex information. During MCP Spelling Workout Level H for Grade 8, he or she will grasp the English language rules that will help him or her predict patterns in Spelling. For instance, your student will know that "i" comes before "e," except after "c." Additionally, your student will solidify his or her foundational Spelling knowledge while gleaning new, age-appropriate Spelling concepts.
MCP Spelling Workout for Grade 8 is a dynamic program, allowing you to set the pace of your student's progress. Feel free to go back and review challenging concepts or push forward through the ones your student seems to understand easily.
MCP Spelling Workout was designed to be used in conjunction with the appropriate level of MCP Plaid Phonics. Spelling Workout is an excellent curriculum that stands alone but when paired with MCP Plaid Phonics you have a dynamic duo that will provide your student with a well-rounded Spelling education.
Even without MCP Plaid Phonics, you will construct engaging and thoughtful lessons. The materials included in MCP Spelling Workout: Grade 8 will help you do so.
MCP Spelling Workout Level G for Grade 8 is a great choice to keep your child moving forward in his or her education.
