I Love Spalding

I took a Spalding course many years back. My own children's school use it in first grade. I love the spalding method. The problem is that the curriculum is very rigid and there really isn't a lot of wiggle room. In order to do it her way, you really have to do the whole routine.

I do suggest buying the book though. It is a great resource for learning how to think about and teach phonics. I have read through the book on several occasions. And I do use the phonograms regularly when teaching within my basal's phonics lessons.

By the way, there is a Spalding group here on ProTeacher. Look for it in the groups section.
