About Sequential Spelling:
Through seven progressive levels of difficulty, Sequential Spelling never asks your students to ‘study’ more words, only to spell them. (Note that volume levels do not necessarliy correlate with grade levels.)
Your children get immediate results with Sequential Spelling. Minimize study time and reduce test-taking anxiety! Sequential Spelling teaches students to recognize patterns of spelling based on the rules of the English language, but without all the complicated explanations.
The AVKO spelling programme was written by a dyslexic for dyslexics and those who have had limited success with other spelling programmes. AVKO stands for Auditory, visual, kinaesthetic and oral.
Do not be deceived by the simplicity of the layout or the number of words listed each day. The student doesn't have to memorise the words which is completely different to any other spelling programme we have seen. Words are dictated daily and corrected immediately. As this happens consistently and in logical sequence every day, they learn through writing of the words- no testing!
In Sequential Spelling 1, students begin with -in- on the first day and within five days they can spell beginning all on their own. Here’s how: ask your children to spell the simple root word or suffix, in. To help them understand the meaning, use the word in a sentence. “The children went in the house.” Once your students have attempted to spell the word and before you give the next word, you write the correct spelling on a dry erase or chalkboard and ask them to check the board, erase and correct their own work, if necessary, immediately. Each successive day you ask students to spell more words that contain -in, such as pin, sin, spin, skin, and twin. More patterns are added through a sequence based on the rules and tense structure of English words - from the root word to plural, past and progressive forms gently leading students from a simple CVC (pin) to a CV+CVC (begin) to CVCe (stove) CVVC (toad) and so on. Some word families covered: -in, -out, -et, -ove,
