Using the graduated spelling feature assessments makes determinining what instructional level to use for special ed easy! Once the level is determined, just follow the program for that student.

I had to purchase this for a college course, and while the information contained is daunting, I am finding it more and more useful as I move along toward my teaching license. The accompanying cd is a great bonus, too.

This book does a great job of helping teachers to analyze student spelling so that they can more easily provide more prescriptive instruction. Many hands-on activities are suggested to use with groups of children.

Buying this book was a complete rip off, I would give the online version 0 stars if I could. I can not open this book on any of my devices and there was no warning that you could not open the book.

I threw out the spelling book in my classroom, and I use this instead. This book is amazing! I have used the previous edition and have tons of pages marked to use in the classroom. The word sorts and picture sorts are practical and an excellent way to get kids involved and active in spelling.
