Sequential Spelling is the spelling program where
students learn to spell difficult words quickly without ever
needing to study. All of the patterns of the
English language are covered in 7 school years with only 15
minutes per day. Sequential Spelling is great for schools as well as
homeschoolers. The 7 levels are not based on grade
level of individual words. Almost all students should
start with Level 1.

Adults, independent learners, and advanced students
can use the DVDs with great success. Some
students require periodic "spot checking" to review
certain patterns or cover the tricky words included.

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.
