How do you spell this? I hear this from my husband even, it's not just the kids. If not for electronic resources that we can easily load on our portable devices such as iPads and other tablets, we would have to carry about that big old Webster's dictionary in our bags. I don't know about you, but I don't want to carry that. But I have another problem, I don't have any type of tablet.
Another issue in our house, even a student dictionary is overwhelming for the boys to look at. The definition, parts of speech, extra pictures are just too distracting for them. So if I suggest looking it up in a dictionary it brings on a meltdown.
So the See-N-Spell Spelling and Vocabulary Quick Reference Guide is a good fit for our kids. It contains 300+ of the most commonly misspelled words, listed alphabetically. It provides a great at-a-glance reference for any age. This book is designed to enhance both correct spelling and help to create a broader vocabulary usage for Grades 4 and up.
This book works out well for our children, as well as for Joe and I. You can easily flip through the pages and search through the alphabetized words.
I like that it easily packs when we travel and doesn't take up much room on the shelf. It also does not overwhelm Joey when he needs to look up a word. I cannot express how much of a benefit that is.
SEE-N-SPELL benefits include...
