Spelling through Phonics. Second Edition.
McCracken, Marlene J.; McCracken, Robert A.
In a new compact and easy-to-use edition, this book presents a program that provides students with a developmentally appropriate framework in which students become proficient spellers and at the same time develop as readers and writers. The book includes the original spelling instruction program; spelling dictation lists for grades 1 to 3; an explanation of phonemic awareness; detailed instructions on how to teach spelling; methods to organize children's practice of spelling within the school day; how to assess and react to children's writing; and a brief section on penmanship. Chapters in the book are: (1) Introduction to the Program; (2) Kindergarten; (3) The First Weeks of Grade One; (4) Learning and Practicing; (5) Reacting to Children's Writing; and (6) Spelling Dictation Grades 1-3. An appendix provides spelling checklists, checklists for grades 1 to 3, a letter to parents, a practice writing page, and an alphabet to show proper letter formation. (RS)
