This set includes the teacher's manual (Spell to Write and Read) and WISE Guide for Spelling.
This foundational vocabulary program of 2000 spelling words is divided in WISE Guide into manageable lessons with two pages of ideas for each set of 20 words. Each lesson has preliminary warm up drills, motivational comments for introducing the lesson, and reminders to teach specific Reference Pages (following instructions in SWR). Sample sentences are given to illustrate each word. Selections come from the Bible, literature, quotes of famous people, or instructive comments. Each word is divided into syllables and marked for spelling rules. Suggested teacher dialogue is provided. Creative spelling reinforcements replace boring, passive activities like copying a word five times. Optional enrichment activities involve a wide variety of subjects: art, literature, composition, grammar (including all parts of speech), antonyms, synonyms, derivatives, etymology, contractions, compound words, alphabetizing, punctuation, alliteration, homonyms, analogies, words of comparison, oxymorons, figures of speech, poetry, plurals, possession, and appositives.
