Manual: Spelling Book Grade 3 is the teacher’s edition of Spelling Book Grade 3. It includes the text of the students’ version and step-by-step teaching instructions for each of the 73 lessons. In addition, tests, a complete copy of the Carden Vowel Chart, word lists for reference, an appendix, and an index are included.
Rather than encouraging memorization, this book will show you how to teach the rules discussed in the lesson so that students can apply them not just to the words in the spelling list, but in many, many words that follow the same rules.
Each lesson is divided into two parts taught on consecutive days. Two full lessons are taught each week.
Part 1 equips students to accurately spell example words by studying and applying the rules of phonics and word structure showcased in those words.
Part 2 allows students to apply what they’ve been learning as they write down sentences dictated by the teacher. Those sentences form a paragraph or two. Interesting facts about astronomy, animals, weather, and more are included in the paragraphs. The class will participate as sentences are analyzed for comprehension. Vocabulary development, the proper use of grammar, punctuation, capitalization, pronouns, and verbs are featured. Finally, students will learn to organize the content of the sentences into an outline.
