Spelling by Structure and Sound, Grade 3 Set (Student and Teacher Book)
Click to enlarge image(s)
Looking for a good solid spelling program? Look no further! Spelling by sound is the simple phonetic skill of hearing sounds and writing the corresponding letters. Spelling by structure applies regular patterns of word building, such as doubling the consonant to add -ing.
Though the English language has many irregularities and phonetic exceptions, a good grasp of phonics aids correct spelling. The majority of consonant sounds and some vowel sounds are consistently indicated by the same letter. Other sounds have consistent spelling patterns according to position in a word or syllable. About one-half of the words in our vocabulary are phonetic. Most of the remaining half employ spelling patterns (such as oa for long o) and word-building patterns (such as dropping e to add a suffix).
Bible words, characters, and stories appear in the exercises and illustrations, along with examples of Christian conduct. The teacher's manuals provide test sentences for each spelling word, and some guidance for teaching the lesson. Set includes softcover write-in Student Workbook plus Teacher's Manual.
Grade 3: 34 lessons. 2 pages for each lesson.
Each lesson lists 13 new words and 3 review words, except every sixth lesson which is completely review.
