- When to apply the I-Before-E Generalization
- How to add two suffixes to a word
- Clues for when to use tion and sion to spell the sound of /shŭn/
- How to alphabetize words to the fourth letter
- The Doubling Rule for adding vowel suffixes
- Nine ways to pluralize words
- Another way to spell /er/
- New spelling strategies that will help him tackle longer words with ease
- and more!
The multisensory learning tools and activities included in the program help your student master important spelling concepts. You’ll appreciate the organization, thought and research that went into this program as you work with your student.

- The Segmenting Words activity helps your student identify the individual sounds in a word so that he can spell more easily and accurately.

- Word Banks help your student build visual memory of words.

- Tips for the teacher anticipate and provide answers to your questions and give you on-the-spot strategies for helping your student overcome stumbling blocks. Worked seamlessly into the lessons, tips are placed right where you need them, when you need them, so you can continue your teaching uninterrupted.
- The Homophone Pairs activity provides more practice for the student to recognize and choose the correct homophone in his own writing.
- The Progress Chart gives your student a visual reminder of how far he has come and motivates him to master the next step.
