A Review of Sequential Spelling

This year I have used Sequential Spelling with my son who has struggled with spelling. It has made a huge difference in his spelling abilities. The program is written to teach words that build upon each other. You begin with a small root word, such as the word “in”. And then you begin adding prefixes and suffixes to that word. There are 180 lists in each level, and you give the student a spelling test each day. Each lesson builds from the day before, and the author, Don McCabe, walks you through how to administer the program for the first 8 days. After that, you will be comfortable with how the program works, and you won’t need his lesson guidance.

For the first time in his life, my son says that spelling makes sense, and he is learning. That is a major statement coming from my son.

This program can be used with any age student. I would not recommend it for a student in grades K, 1, or 2. It moves pretty quickly, and I would say that it best suits students from grade 3 and up.

Have a blessed day! Tami
