More About This Textbook


This revised collection focuses on patterns and facts that teachers can use to help students become better spellers. The book includes additions to previous lists plus new lists that deal with various aspects of etymology. Photos of words-in-action have been added to illustrate how language works and lives in the real world. Based on extensive practical experience with teachers and children, the lists evolve from the common errors that children make and reflect the thinking that children naturally do when attempting to figure out words.

Although it is true that “no real rules apply to English spelling,” there are intelligible patterns. These patterns are what we use to construct words. The lists in this book focus on teachable components of the language, including consonants, vowels, confusable spellings, linguistic roots, and useful rules.

It is impossible to memorize all the words that we need and use every day. The Spelling Teacher's Book of Lists will show teachers how to help their students learn more about spelling, uncover word logic and patterns, and develop problem-solving methods for constructing words and phrases.
