Abeka Spelling Programs
A component of the Abeka English program, you could use this convenient vocabulary with spelling program on its own. A schedule, including spelling and vocabulary (as well as poetry memorization), is in the main English/Language Arts Curriculum Lesson Plans for each grade level. The student book has seven lessons per quarter in spelling and vocabulary. Spelling lists feature 20 words each and vocabulary has 10 words each. At this level, the focus is more on vocabulary with definitions, synonyms, antonyms, and fill-in-the-blank exercises. Spelling lists include commonly misspelled words and serve mostly as review. The poems are part of the Abeka English program and are placed in this series for convenience. Each level has between 8 and 10 poems of varying lengths. You could use just the student book and teacher key, or add the quiz book & quiz key if you like. Overall, the lessons are short and to the point and won’t take loads of time for your busy student to complete. The words selected are challenging and often promote a Christian theme. Grades 1-3 have spelling and poetry. Grades 4-12 have spelling, vocabulary & poetry. Spelling Charts show the word lists from all 30 lessons. They are large format and two-sided. More details about each level are found on the website.
