AVKO Sequential Spelling Level 1Author: Don Mcabe
Retail Price: $19.95
This is the only method of teaching spelling that eliminates the Study-for-the-test-and-forget-by-Monday syndrome. Each of the 7 levels has 180 daily tests of 25 words. The AVKO approach uses its daily tests as a learning device and not as a method of evaluation. AVKO adds to this by using immediate student self-correction and careful sequencing of the patterns. Students who can read and spell at about a second grade level will be able to effectively use Sequential Spelling 1. Students should be able to make at least phonetic guesses for spellings of words, being able to put most of the correct consonants in the words, even if the vowels are not correct.
