The effective and fun-filled way to teach spelling to elementary students

The Spelling Teacher's Lesson-a-Day gives teachers 180 engaging and ready-to-use lessons-one for each day of the school year-that boost spelling skills in students grades 3-6.

He also boosts students' spelling skills by demystifying contractions, abbreviations, capitalization, silent letters, suffixes and prefixes, and more. * Offers an easy-to-use method for teaching spelling that has been proven to be effective * Includes 180 ready-to-use, reproducible lessons-one for each day of the school year * A new volume in the new series 5-Minute FUNdamentals
