Age: Grades 1-2
About: I was very excited to get to review Memoria Press. Their bundles are always great and ready to go. Traditional Spelling I is for grades 1-2 or children that are behind and need more help. The set includes the student book, teacher book, practice sheets and flash cards. The teacher book has a daily schedule laid out for each lesson. This helps those busy moms that need a plan made out for them. No guess work all the tops and things you need to teach are written right there in the book. The lessons are short and yet the repetition of the lessons builds each day to teach the phonics of the words. We spent probably about 30 minutes a day on the lessons because my child is dyslexic and has a harder time adjusting to reading the words. These lessons could easily go 15 minutes and you could do other activities to build on and practice the list of words for each week. I also like how the teacher book has a copy of the actual student page with the answers filled in. This helps when I’m sitting across the room doing something else and she has a question I don’t have to go to her, I can see it right for myself. So I do believe this is a good for those teaching more than one child. We also liked to be able to use the flash cards as additional practice. It helps give a visual and we can work on quickness of memorizing those sounds to the letters. You also get more practice spelling with the practice sheets and a weekly test to take to see how well you are doing. We take Thursday practice test to see where we need to work on harder to do our best on Friday’s test.
I think this would be a great curriculum for spelling for any mom that needs a premade ready to go lesson. There is no guess work. It is just pull it out and go type of work. Also makes it easy for those that need to plan ahead or need to have someone help if you are sick or having a baby! No need to worry about the plans as it’s already made for you.
