Modern Milestones is designed for students in the Word Extension stage of spelling. Students will read about the contributions of many different people during the last four centuries. Students will begin to learn details about specific spelling patterns, particularly how prefixes and suffixes are used to expand or change the meaning of words.

This level:

  • Features artists, musicians, scientists, and others who have influenced our world since early modern times
  • Expands and adapts the familiar Spelling You See activities:
    • marking word patterns – focuses attention on the ways in which suffixes and prefixes affect the spelling of different words
    • copywork – continues to be a valuable tool to help the brain pay attention to details in print
    • dictation – gives the student the opportunity to recall the proper letter patterns from memory
  • Includes a weekly Workshop activity that provides students with opportunities to apply and practice the patterns they have learned
  • Gradually increases in reading level, providing opportunities for vocabulary development and allowing students to learn how to spell words in an interesting context

The Instructor's Handbook contains an introduction to the philosophy behind Spelling You See and the five developmental stages of spelling. The Handbook also contains a "Getting Started" guide with an overview of the organization of the 36 lessons and information about the important skills and concepts to be taught at this level. At the back of the Handbook there is more information about each activity, answers to frequently asked questions, the passages for dictation, and an answer key. There are also tables summarizing the word patterns taught in Modern Milestones.
