They enable children to learn words and control them when reading and spelling. Students will come to use this workbook without assistance, writing words from their own experience and vocabulary. Self-correction techniques help them overcome the fear of making errors and embrace the joy of learning.
The purpose of this workbook is to offer material for mental growth, not provide a grade. It is for development. Spelling grades are given based on lessons dictated by the teacher, not the exercises of this book.
Spelling Workbook 1 is introduced after the children have completed Blue Book. Sample lesson plans appear in Grade One Manual, Pages 58, 59, and 63.
