How the Kits Work:
1) Write a child's spelling words clearly on an index card, and place the card in the box.
2) Each day, the child will choose one activity card from the spelling kit and do the activities listed. Most children should be able to do these activities without help. Younger children may need help with some of the activities.
Q: Do I need a box for each child?
A: Children can share the box if they do not practice spelling at the same time. If children practice spelling at the same time, they will each need their own box.
Q: Should the child do the cards in number order (do card #1 the first day, card #2 the second day, and so on)?
A: It's up to you! The nice thing about having your child go in order is that the child will receive an even variety of activities, he or she will not have to spend extra time each day reading through the cards and trying to choose one.
Q: Why is this box called Spelling Box #1?
A: We plan to release three spelling boxes. The only difference between them is that they contain different activities. No kit is more or less difficult than another kit. It is suggested that you use a new kit at least each school year to give a variety and freshness to practicing. You could use a different kit each year, or you could switch to a different kit once every 3-4 months, rotating through all of them in one year. Spelling Box #2 is expected to release in June of 2019.
