Nearly a decade in the making, the long-awaited sixth edition of the classic Spalding primer helps children develop their reading skills through a multi-sensory approach so natural and stimulating that reading itself is never taught outright—it simply begins. Teachers, tutors, and parents will find the latest edition of Writing Road to Reading a powerful tool for its phonics-based, total language arts program. Writing Road to Reading lets children learn to put sounds together, form meaningful words, write meaningful sentences, and develop their creative minds, allowing them to progress quickly toward absorbing—and enjoying—the great works of children’s literature. Dr. Susan Moore, editor of Education Monitor, praises Spalding Educational International’s approach, saying "because the Method is multi-sensory . . . it works for everyone. . . . No other approach to early literacy has this record of success."

The Spalding Method is a total language arts approach that has been used by teachers and parents for nearly fifty years to teach millions of students to spell, write, and read. Now fully updated to reflect the latest research on how children learn language, this newest edition is easier to use than ever.
The Spalding Method helps train the right and left sides of the brain as children see, hear, read, and write. It is cost-effective and efficient; students use pencils, paper, and their minds. The results are stunning: Children learn to connect speech sounds to print and begin to write and read almost magically. Spalding students perform well in the classroom and on tests -- and most important, they love to read and write.About the Author:
