Mary Clair Scott
without whose work and devotion to the cause of literacy, the AVKO Foundation might never have gotten off the ground,
Betty June Szilagyi
who was my first and by far my most important teacher,
without whose encouragement and commitment to the ideals of AVKO this edition would not be possible,
Ann, Robert, and Linda McCabe
all of whom have sacrificed much of their time and energy helping AVKO grow as well as all those friends and relatives who have been a source of encouragement. May this book help you to help others improve their abilities to read and write.

The Basic Concepts of Teaching Spelling by Word Families
You may have used the concept of rhyming words that have the same letter endings to help your students learn to read. For example, you may have introduced the word at, then also shared cat, bat, sat, and maybe even scat. Unfortunately, you have never had any source book for finding all the rhyming words with the same spelling patterns. [NOTE: In the latest academic jargon word families are now called “rimes.” The consonants, consonant blends, and digraphs that precede the word family (or rime) are now called onsets. Use whatever term you wish with your students. In this book, I generally use the terms base bat cat scat flat pat spat mat rat batter flatter matter battle cattle rattle bats cats scats flats pats spats mats rats batters flatters matters battles rattles batted or word family rather than the new jargon word “rime.”] The Patterns of English Spelling (formerly Word Families Plus) is now available to be used as a source book so that you can teach any word family. This is not just a simple collection of word lists. This book consists of complete patterns to help your students (and quite often parents and teachers!) see patterns that exist and to lock in on those patterns with their “computer” brains. For example, I believe that if you can teach your students (or anyone) the word at, you can also teach them: batting
flatted patted matted ratted battered flattered mattered battled rattled
flatting patting matting ratting battering flattering mattering battling rattling battery flattery batteries
OR, for a more sophisticated example, from the word act you can build: act fact tract attract distract extract subtract contract acts facts tracts attracts distracts extracts subtracts contracts acted acting active action traction attraction distraction extraction subtraction contraction
attracted distracted extracted subtracted contracted
attracting distracting extracting subtracting contracting
Please note the AVKO motto on the bottom of these pages: Use a Dry Erase Board or Something Similar to Give AVKO Sequential Spelling Tests The First Day On your first day of using Sequential Spelling 4. And remember that according to Harry Greene’s The New Iowa Spelling Scale (1954) only 21% of all public school 4rd graders can be expected to spell the word finished. and so forth. Day 4 is in the middle column on page 9. Day 2 is in the middle column on page 5. The good news is that each one of you will correct your own paper.4 Perhaps the most important difference between the traditional approach to spelling and the AVKO (Audio-Visual-KinestheticOral) approach is that we use tests as a learning device and not as a method of evaluation. Note the location of Day 1. If your students have their own copy of the AVKO Student Response Book for Sequential Spelling. just ask them to try to spell the word unfinished only. Okay? Now write the following sentence: We have some unfinished business to take care of. we are going to have a spelling test. I believe that the natural method of learning is learning from mistakes. First the bad news. It's not for a Mistakes are Opportunities to Learn . ask them to just put down—in any order—some of the letters that might be in the word unfinished. Now collect their papers. That's my first test. Did you spell your name correctly? Good. or even weeks later. you will be able to demonstrate that your students who couldn't spell unfinished on the first day were able to correctly spell it without ever having seen or studied the word. have them open their books to page 3. share with your students: I have some good news and some bad news. Statistics are not available on the word unfinished. Even those who may miss the word will have a spelling much closer to the correct spelling than they did on the first day. We developed the AVKO Sequential Spelling Tests to utilize the word family approach sequentially and to apply the very simple techniques of having students correct their own mistakes when they make them—not hours. If any of your students shows signs of struggling with the sentence. and that is why I want students to correct their own mistakes when they make them—so they can learn from them. My next test is like a doctor's test. It is in the middle column of page 3. On the 4th day. If they still find it difficult to put down anything. We will expect that you will point that out to your students on the 4th day. grade so don't worry about it. But before we start. I want each of you to take out a sheet of paper and put your name on it. days. Today and every day until we finish this book. Day 3 is in the middle column on page 7.

At least guess what letters freakish begins with. ticklish. In the column marked 1st day/Lesson 1. shriek. ish in green.”. very ticklish. On the dry erase board you now show the –eak in black and then write ish in green to contrast with either red or green fr and the black eak.) Depending upon the age of your students and their attitudes. Have them use their erasers and write it right. This is not the time to jump on one of your students for doing it. “I-S-H”. In other words. Try to impress upon them that it doesn't make any sense to cheat. If you don't get it right. Some students may ask why there isn't an e after the letter l because there is one in the word tickle. Isn't that why erasers are put on the ends of pencils? While your students are attempting to write the word freakish. you show on the dry erase board just the letters f and r. and sheik can be used to illustrate that point. please write the word “freakish” as in: “We were involved in a freakish accident. On the dry erase board you now show the -as. (It really doesn’t matter what color you use for the A and the S. “F. or -ing ending as the case may be. Have each child check his spelling with yours. You write t in green. Now. Use one sheet for each day’s spelling lesson. have them use a notebook with single sheets of paper. In fact. Again. ickl in black. Tell them once again that they are correcting their own papers. there will be shouts. “E-E-K. you may try to get them to spell aloud the word with you (the oral channel) as they trace over their corrected spelling (the kinesthetic channel). Congratulate any of your students who said “I-E-K. writing the word (Kinesthetic). I want every one of you to try. the students are using a multi-sensory approach to learning that research has demonstrated is a powerful method. Just as students don't learn by copying from others. Now you ask what the last three letters of freakish are. Then you give the second word. If your students don’t have a Student Response Book. Most little students are very. it's no big deal! So you erase it and write it right.

The words week. there may be some rubber necks or elastic eyeballs in action. but it is the time to ask them how much they are going to learn from someone else's mistakes. I personally like to use green for the word family patterns to contrast later on with the black beginning letters. “EE'k” can even be spelled -ique or -ic(!) as in unique and chic.5 The reason for this arrangement is to prevent students from copying the base word that they had the day before and then just adding the -s. you now ask your students: What are freakish? the first two letters in letters are used to spell the middle sound of freakish. and saying the word (Oral).
Write the ending base sound (e.. They painted the walls a sort of bluish color. Continue through the words for the day using the same procedure. Say the word.

You may then grade your students on their learning of the spelling of the sounds—not the words. 5-6 = C. and rice in the sixth. price in the fifth.
