The Spelling Scholar 
(Schools or districts wanting ordering information, go to the Contact/Order page.)

Common Core Standards are here! Is  your school or district ready? The Spelling Scholar is more than just another spelling program. It is a research-based, comprehensive word study program for grades 1-6 that meets the Common Core Standards (Spelling Scholar alignment). 
It comes complete with teacher background materials, inquiry based lessons, applied practice exercises, three (3) levels of word sorts for differentiation (below, at, and above grade level), application based tests, keys, dictionary skills, writing, games, posters, high frequency words and activities, and manipulatives. 
Are you tired of students misspelling the same words over again in their daily work? Our personal word portion of the program, teacher controlled, but managed by the students, ends these frustrations. Delivered on a cd, it can be placed on district servers and individual computers. Teachers can utilize electronic media for displaying lessons and can print for their students exactly the learning materials that fit their learning needs. See samples below.
