Sequential Spelling is AVKO's premiere seven-level
spelling program for the teaching of the patterns of English
spelling within seven normal public school years.
Sequential Spelling is great for schools as well as
homeschoolers. The sequences are not based on grade
level curriculum. The sequences are based on building from
easy words to advanced words as from all, tall, stall,
install, installment, installation. Most students should
start with Level 1. Use our
pre-test for Sequential Spelling (PDF) to
determine more specifically where your student should begin
if level 1 will be too easy for your student(s).

The 7 Levels of Sequential Spelling
The 7 Levels of the
Engaging Language Kits
Nearly every teacher has some students who need one-to-one
help in spelling. This is designed for those parents
and educators to help their children/students who are not
succeeding with the standard themed list approach.
Many homeschoolers complete
all seven levels at a much faster rate. As there are twice
as many days in a regular year (2x180=360) with an extra
five (for good behavior),
two levels can be completed with just one ten-minute lesson
every day, Monday through Sunday. Two ten-minute lessons a
day, every day, one in the morning and one in late afternoon,
will get you through 4 levels in one year.
The child builds confidence
when he can spell words he has never
seen before without studying.
AVKO does not present "rules" in its Sequential
Spelling and other spelling materials. Instead, the
embedded in the program so that the children can pick them
up automatically. AVKO does have materials available for parents
and teachers to be able to teach the rules if they so
desire. Please see the following materials:
