Requiring just fifteen minutes a day, Spelling Power is totally individualized. This individualization allows each of your students to begin, progress and succeed at their own pace to master the 5,000 words children and adults use and misspell most frequently. Your students will use the research proven test-study-test method, along with immediate self-correction, to master word lists which are organized by phonetic principles and spelling rules.

Additional words which your students need to master are discovered from your student's own writing errors and added to your Spelling Power program using the resources provided. Your students will continue to study each of these words until they have spelled them correctly at least once. Then Spelling Power's spiral curriculum approach of repeated, spaced review will assure your students master every word they study. And your students will master them! The six levels of built-in review assure that every word taught will be mastered. Multi-sensory study steps, inductive learning activities, interesting games, and the incorporation of spelling into the rest of your curriculum are integral aspects of the Spelling Power program.

Your students will use this research proven program to master the 5,000 most frequently used words. These words are divided into 11 levels based on their usage. Each level of Spelling Power's unique word list is then further organized by phonetic principles and spelling rules.

Even if you are new to teaching, you'll find that Spelling Power's all new, easy-to-understand Quick Start Steps and the included Quick Start DVD Seminar will help you give each of your students Spelling Power in just 15 minutes per day!

Earlier printings of Spelling Power (fourth edition) came with a Teacher's Resource CD-ROM, providing a wealth of printable skill-building activities, teaching aids, printable test forms and more. These resources are now available for free from the Spelling Power website (access instructions included in all books printed since 2015).
