Memorization Doesn’t Make Mastery

Spelling instruction often consists of students memorizing a weekly spelling list. Spelling Connections is not your typical spelling program. Backed by extensive research, it uses carefully-curated spelling lists to teach patterns, build vocabulary, and develop the skills students need to become proficient spellers. Proficient spelling leads to improved skills in other areas, including more fluent writing.

Designed for grades K–8, Spelling Connections incorporates hands-on activities, motivating online resources, and differentiated instruction to make your students savvy spellers—all in just 15 minutes a day.

The result is a program that presents the right words at the right time, so that every student can achieve spelling success.
