    Traditional Spelling for Struggling Speller

    I saw a suggestion on another thread to use Traditional Spelling for a struggling speller. I thought this was a great idea, and I intend to do this with my 10 year old - I strongly suspect dyslexia, but still waiting on evals.

    Is there a plan to continue the Traditional Spelling series? and if so, is there any timeline on when book 3 would be ready?

    Thanks!

    Good morning! For now we have only Traditional Spelling One and Two, but this will be sufficient for at least two, possibly three, years of intensive spelling and word study.

    In SC we teach Traditional Spelling One in SC 4 as a one-year course. Then we teach Traditional Spelling Two over SC 5&6 as a two-year course (with a one-year accelerated option) for three years of incremental work with phonemes, prefixes, suffixes, word patterns, and more.

    Someone else from MP may update on any future levels of Traditional Spelling, but I just wanted to assure you that even if the series ended with One and Two, the existing levels are worth investing your time.

      Good morning Amanda,

      We do plan to continue the Traditional Spelling series, but we do not have an ETA for Level III at this time. Because Levels I and II are still new, we are currently focusing on supporting their launch and evaluating feedback so that we can ensure Level III only improves on the series' strengths.

        Is there a decision tree for going with Traditional Spelling versus Spelling Workout, with regards to older students?

          This is fantastic news! I love that all these lovely things will be ready for Captain (M) when he is needing them but sad they aren't here now so my older kids can benefit from them.

            So, to be absolutely clear, there are no plans to have TS3 ready for Fall of 19/20? I'm drooling over MP3, but I would totally wait until August of next year if TS3 were in the works.

            I'm loving TS2 with DD. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to extend the examples for mixed up letters through all 15 words. I have considered post-it notes for future children, as it takes enough time to keep the consonant teams together and still scramble the words. The missing vowels/vowel teams is much easier to extend.

              Unfortunately, there is no way we will be ready to launch TS3 by the start of the 19/20 school year. We would love to release it ASAP, but we want to work methodically and in conjunction with the HLS 3rd grade teachers to make TS3 the best possible next step in the Traditional Spelling series, however long that takes.

                Hello again,

                I completely missed this comment when I responded. Mea culpa!

                We can certainly try to add more examples for this activity, though not every lesson has room for more. That TM is packed!

                  Currently this is the plan:


                  SC 1 - Learning to read, spelling through phonics instruction and word patterns
                  SC 2 - Learning to read, spelling through phonics instruction and word patterns, plus Simply Classical Spelling One, Core Skills Spelling 1
                  SC 3 - Learning to read, spelling through phonics instruction and word patterns, plus Simply Classical Spelling Two, Core Skills Spelling 2
                  SC 4 - Traditional Spelling One
                  SC 5 and 6 - Traditional Spelling Two (Two-Year Standard option spreads the study of TS Two over two years to allow for plenty of practice; One-Year Accelerated pace will be available)
                  SC 7 and 8 - tbd
