    Question about First Grade Package

    The first grade package I have has spelling lists in it...The new package uses Spelling Workout, and I wonder if this replaces the spelling lists, or is it in addition to it?...My son is using the first grade package, and I am debating on adding Spelling Workout since he will have it in the second grade package next year...We plan to continue with MP, so I am trying to make sure he is prepared...

    Thanks so much in advance...

    The Autumn Oak,

    Either spelling will work as preparation for second grade and SWO. It is fine to use the lists in the back of the curriculum guide you have. But, you wouldn't want to use both those lists and Spelling Work Out. You are just working from an older guide. Be sure to use the SRA as your phonics lessons if you continue with the older guide. When we switched to Spelling Work Out we also switched our phonics program. As long as he is doing both spelling and phonics lessons he should be ready for the second grade with SWO.
