I am using a program this year called SPELLING CONNECTIONS. There is over 30 years of research behind this program and it’s effectiveness with struggling spellers. It  incorporates research-based learning techniques such as self-testing, self-evaluation, and the Look-Say-See-Write-Check word study method.

This year I am using a specialized program that was developed to help struggling readers. It is called SEEING STARS by Nanci Bell. The research behind this program is quite impressive.
