This 1st grade Student Textbook Level A for Modern Curriculum Press Spelling Workout can help every student can become a successful speller in no time. Spelling Workout 2002 integrates spelling with reading and writing. In each core lesson, students read spelling words in context in a variety of fiction and nonfiction selections. The reading selections provide opportunities for reading across the curriculum, focusing on the subject areas of science, social studies, health, language arts, music, and art. After students read the selection and practice writing their spelling words, they use list words to help them write about a related topic in a variety of forms such as descriptive paragraphs, stories, news articles, poems, letters, advertisements, and posters. A proofreading exercise is also provided for each lesson to help students apply the writing process to their own writing and reinforce the use of spelling words in context. Recommended for 1st grade.
