I combine this program with teaching spelling rules. I
love how my children get to work with word families and how
the repetition sets things in their brains.
I used it with students who did not have good phonics
skills, and were sight learners. I also taught language
skills, such as prefixes and suffixes with it. It helped
them make sense of language, and using words correctly in
sentences. They liked the instant correction, and the
patterns of the words. It provided more success than any
other program I have used.
I think the book I'm using is just about perfect for my
daughter who has poor spelling skills. It also is fine for
my son, who is a great speller. It introduces words he
wouldn't usually get in a traditional method, so his
vocabulary is expanding.
I have never found a spelling program that has worked
until using Sequential Spelling. In the past, my experience
with every other program used was that my children would do
very well on their spelling tests but then not apply it to
We love your program. As a busy homeschool mother, I
would love to have your program as computer software, so
that my kids could do it more independently. Gracias!
I am very impressed with the book approach AVKO uses to
teach spelling, and think the only thing that could make it
better would be for the student to be able to do the lessons
independently with some oversight by their parent or
We love Sequential Spelling. It works for my son where
traditional programs failed miserably.
Sequential Spelling has been a real boon for my family of
home educated children, which includes three children with
specific learning difficulties. I have been particularly
impressed with my dyslexic child's progress and the knock-on
effect this has had in giving her the confidence to attempt
to read independently at a more challenging level. I would
appreciate explanations of words occasionally, especially
when they are words unfamiliar outside the United States.
The English/American English spelling variations are
particularly useful. I have not found a spelling programme I
like more and am very impressed with it.
I expect a spelling program that makes sense. SS makes SO
much sense I'm surprised that I haven't seen the method
everywhere. Additionally, when my son spells the "big words"
right, it gives him SUCH pride and confidence.
We had no idea what we needed in a spelling program. All
of our children struggled with learning differences. We just
knew we needed something completely different from the
typical spelling programs. We learned about this program
through Sonlight Curriculum. We are so thrilled with the
program. Our children's eyes are filled with excitement now
instead of filled with fear about spelling. We are seeing
improvements in self-esteem.
I was wondering how to get my teenage boys through the
levels, and God gave me this idea: I do Level 1 with all the
5 children once a day, and the two teenagers do levels 2 and
three with each other. One day one of them is "teacher", and
reads out the word, copies the word in his own book, and
then the other checks his answer. The next day they swap
roles. Since there is so much repetition they still learn to
spell, but it saves me half an hour a day of teaching time.
So next year I guess I will do level 4 with them all and
they will do levels 5 and 6 with each other. That gets us
I like being involved in my children's education, so I
don't find it essential that I have little to no
preparation. I do find Sequential Spelling very easy to use
and it lets me focus my preparation time on other subjects,
so it helps me keep a balance. I'm also very confident that
it is working very well.
I really like your program it has helped my son who is
dyslexic. I wish you had some math helps for dyslexics as he
also has to cope with that
Thank you so much for making the patterns of English,
volumes free with membership. It wasn't before, and those
with the patterns are, in my opinion, key to my son's
Your spelling book is the best. I am an ardent fan, and
making more fans in Redding each year.
