Perfect FitUser Review - Christianbook.com
I am quite pleased with the Spectrum language arts curriculum. We are using Spelling, Vocabulary, Reading, and Writing. It is affordable and effective. My son works well on his own, and he is a natural speller. I really just wanted something to keep him practicing and to help build his vocabulary. The lessons are designed to be done weekly, and are easy enough for him to do with little to no supervision. There are sections in each lesson for "across the curriculum" that tie in other Spectrum workbooks. I may or may not assign those, since we are not using the other books. But it's nice to incorporate other words into it. I anticipate purchasing this again next year!
How many mistakes are in this book?User Review - Christianbook.com
In the preview on page 8 at the bottom of Spectrum Spelling Grade 5, students are to fill in the blanks in the paragraph using the geography words. Presumably students are to fill in with the words India and Africa for the following sentence: "Many people travel the countries to visit and explore. __________and___________ are two countries explored for cultural and historic reasons." Not only is the first sentence of this paragraph awkward with "the countries" (wouldn't it have sounded better writing "to different countries"?), the authors and editors don't seem to know (or care) that Africa is a continent, not a country. For that reason alone I would be reluctant to use this book - those are both pretty sloppy mistakes that I found quite easily as I was casually browsing spelling books to use for next year. I wonder what other mistakes are in the book!
