How does Excellence in Spelling work?
1. Watch the Spelling and The Brain DVD.
First, watch the DVD that describes how the mind works to develop spelling skills and shows the "how to" of the Phonetic Zoo.
2. Present the rule.
Using the Phonetic Zoo flashcards, present the first rule to your student. Read the rule out loud from the back of the card and have the child read and spell out loud the three words. Discuss how the animal name illustrates the rule of the lesson.
3. Present a rule card.
Give your child the small zoo card. This card provides both a reminder of the rule and a motivational tool as children collect cards when they progress through the lessons.
4. Have your student listen to the first lesson.
The child can listen to the introductory comments and work through the first lesson. Each lesson is less than 10 minutes long.
5. Have your child correct his or her work.
The CD will spell the words for your child at the end of the lesson. Your child may also check them against the lesson flashcard.
6. Do a Personal Spelling lesson.
Every fifth lesson is a Personal Spelling lesson. The flashcards for these lessons have 15 blank spaces on which to record your student's misspelled words from writing handed in to you.
7. Have your student take a final exam.
After completing all 47 lessons, a comprehensive exam is taken.
