Product: Natural Speller Subject: Spelling Levels Used: only one book - 1st-8th grade Dates Used: Since 2008
Likes: LOVE this book. It contains wonderful lists of spelling words for each grade (1-8), and the "how to use" instructions make it so easy to use the book. This book not only teaches spelling with phonics rules, but also includes grammar, dictionary skills, and letter writing. Spelling is the favorite subject of both my children and I owe it to The Natural Speller.
Pros: Natural Speller is an affordable totally customizable spelling program. There are word lists divided by grade level and suggestions for activities to teach your child spelling. This is one non-consumable book for spelling up through grade 8. Rules for phonics, spelling and punctuation are listed for easy reference.
Cons: This might not be a good program for a child who really has a hard time spelling. There are many suggestions for things to do to practice spelling, but it's not completely laid out for you.
