Comment: I really liked that words were grouped together by spelling patterns, and built on the same pattern so the student got repetitive practice in each one. I don't like the method, though, of not letting the child see the words first, for every time they write something incorrectly, it gets more ingrained in their mind that way.
Comment: I clicked high for affordability but I really don't know the cost- I got my book 1 from the free table because there was a huge ink spill on the cover. My oldest loved it but she is a natural speller and I think it was like a game for her. My son is using it now as a break from AAS. He struggles but loves recognizing the base and roots and realizing he CAN spell long words!!
