The Student Pack includes two student workbooks and a pack of erasable colored pencils. Each of the 36 lessons is divided into five parts, A through E, and includes two facing pages. Each day the student reads the passage and then “chunks” the appropriate letter patterns indicated for that day’s lesson. There are opportunities for copywork and writing from dictation throughout the week. Each lesson also includes a Spotlight that introduces interesting facts about words.

Ancient Achievements

In Ancient Achievements, students will read about fascinating topics from long ago, such as cave paintings, Viking ships, and Marco Polo. This is the last level in the skill development stage of spelling. It provides continued word practice using the three core activities of chunking, copywork, and dictation while gradually increasing the reading level. At the same time, a new Spotlight feature introduces students to interesting facts about words. The Instructor’s Handbook offers optional activities to help prepare students for the next two stages of spelling.
