Revolutionize how your children learn spelling with this effective sequential approach from the folks at the Institute for Excellence in Writing. Phonetic Zoo Spelling Level A Starter Set is a phonics-based program that uses auditory input to ensure your student's brain absorbs the correct spelling of each word. Making great use of the classical approach of repetition for mastery, the audio recordings let students independently practice the 10-minute daily lessons until they have them down pat, the best way for most kids to learn spelling rules and words. Each lesson presents a rule, jingle, or hint, then focuses on 15 words that either follow the rule or break it, and every fifth lesson is a personal spelling test tailored with words from the student's own writing or vocabulary lists. Animal-themed flashcards reinforce content visually. This kit includes an introductory video, audio CDs, lesson cards, personal spelling cards, zoo cards, and teacher's notes.
