Each lesson presents a rule, jingle or hint, with fifteen words which follow the rule OR break it. Flashcards with animals and animal names can be used for visual reinforcement. Every fifth lesson is a ``personal spelling`` test using words from the student`s own writing or vocabulary. Students study independently, using a CD (headphones are helpful) and practicing the ten-minute lesson each day by taking the auditory ``test`` again and again until a perfect score is achieved. Creating a high repetition of auditory input, this ``classical`` approach is the best way for most children to learn spelling rules and words. An outstanding product from the Institute for Excellence in Writing.
