Successful Spelling provides an integrated method of teaching phonics, spelling and vocabulary. The activities are sequential and there are 76 units - 18 per term - plus four Review and Test units. Answers to all activities are provided in a special lift-out section. Each term is divided into the four areas of knowledge needed to develop a comprehensive mastery of spelling: Phonological Knowledge - how words sound; Word Function Knowledge - how word function can change spelling; Meaning Knowledge - how context can change word form; Word History Knowledge - how words have been derived.
