Overview

The Writing Road to Reading: The Spalding Method for Teaching Speech, Spelling, Writing, and Reading, 6th Rev Ed. by Romalda Bishop Spalding, Mary Elizabeth North

Nearly a decade in the making, the long-awaited sixth edition of the classic Spalding primer helps children develop their reading skills through a multi-sensory approach so natural and stimulating that reading itself is never taught outright—it simply begins. Teachers, tutors, and parents will find the latest edition of Writing Road to Reading a powerful tool for its phonics-based, total language arts program. Writing Road to Reading lets children learn to put sounds together, form meaningful words, write meaningful sentences, and develop their creative minds, allowing them to progress quickly toward absorbing—and enjoying—the great works of children’s literature. Dr. Susan Moore, editor of Education Monitor, praises Spalding Educational International’s approach, saying "because the Method is multi-sensory . . . it works for everyone. . . . No other approach to early literacy has this record of success."
