I have kiddos who have trouble with spelling but fortunately we found The Thinking Tree which basically means Fun-Schooling. We’ve been through phonics (a few times) but they are still having trouble with their spelling.
Spelling Time works great for students with dyslexic, ADHD, and autism because the exercises help create a correct mental picture of the words. But of course any child can use and benefit from Spelling Time and it’s easy to fit this workbook into your child’s current studies. It doesn’t take long to complete a few pages.
I am currently using this with two of boys: Joshua and Caleb and I’m hoping and praying that I won’t hear, “Mom, how do you spell . . . “ once they complete the workbook. It’s not that I don’t mind helping but I want my kids to be good if not great spellers.
The workbook is 98 pages (single sided for a total of 49 activity pages) of fun learning. Your child will color, copy, and fill in the blanks to practice visualizing the words.
Coloring is actually very relaxing for the mind so put on some classical music, get the colored pencils out, and create a stress free environment for your child when using Spelling Time.
With Spelling Time you can take the stress out of having your child memorize a list of weekly words. Coloring (even for teens) can be great fun. I was a bit skeptical at first to ask my teen boys to use Spelling Time because of the coloring but they are completely fine with it, yay!
The book may be copied by the original purchaser which is great if your child needs to redo a page or have more than one student who will use it.
Many of the pages have some art and logic for your child to complete as well. These are the same exercises found in the Dyslexia Games series. In fact if you purchased Dyslexic Games Series C than you all ready own this book! It’s the exact same book.
And as always with The Thinking Tree journals the dyslexic font throughout the book.
Spelling Time would be great for a child who has completed a phonics program and/or ages 10+. Amazon has a Look Inside feature so take a peek and see if this will be a good fit for your child.
I plan to have all my boys go through the book. If your kiddos are too young for this one The Thinking Tree just came out with a spelling book called Fun-Schooling Spelling Journal for ages 5 and up! Lance will soon be using the Fun-Schooling journal once he completes Dyslexic Games.
And Sarah the author of all these fun books is working on another spelling book, spelling through poetry or something fun like that.
