Adams-Gordon's Spelling Power is an award-winning program that teaches solid back-to-basic spelling skills using research-proven approaches and 21st century technology. Your students will use systematic, simultaneous, multi-sensory steps to master the 5,000 most frequently used and misspelled words. These words are divided into eleven levels of frequency, rather than traditional grade levels, to aid immediate improvement in daily writing. The included placement tests allows you to determine at which level each of your students should begin studying and then they progress through the remaining levels at their own pace. Each level has 47 possible groups based on phonetic principles and other spelling conventions. Spelling Power's systematic simultaneous, multi-sensory steps, hands-on skill building activities, and its six levels of built-in review guarantees students of all learning styles and abilities will master every word.

Everything you need to teach all of your students spelling skills to the college level is contained in this one curriculum package. You will even find everything you need to teach proofreading and dictionary skills. Spelling Power comes with access to the On-line Teacher s Resources site providing you a wealth of useful resources.

Even if you are new to teaching, you will find Spelling Power's easy-to-understand, step-by-step manual and the included Quick Start DVD Seminar will help you give all of your students Spelling Power in just 15 minutes per day!

Are you teaching outside of the U.S.A? Spelling Power includes Canadian/British spellings where applicable in both the Flow-Word Lists and the Searchable Word List so you can decide which convention you wish to teach your students.

About the Author:

Beverly L. Adams-Gordon is a veteran home educator with a passion for helping parents successfully educate their children. She has actively served the home education community for over 28 years. She and her husband John began their home school journey in 1987 after removing their daughters from the local public school. This was the first year home schooling was legal in Washington State.


Shortly after beginning teaching their daughters own at home, the Gordons realized there was a real need for local and inexpensive home school resources. In August of 1987, the Gordons opened Family Educational Resources in their double-car garage. The home-based store was one of the first stores in the United States to offer new and used curriculum to home educators and small private schools.


Their oldest daughters graduated home school, high school in 1992 and 1994. Both went on to higher education and successful careers. The Gordon's youngest daughter was home educated from birth through her high School graduation in 2012 and is a graduate of Washington State University.


In addition to home schooling, Adams-Gordon has eight years classroom teaching experience at various grade levels from preschool through high school. She is a certified Montessori teacher and endorsed to teach high school level Math, Science, English and History. She has done extensive research in the areas of multi-sensory methods and learning disabilities. She is an active member of the International Dyslexia Association (Washington Branch). She also spent many years working as a home school supervisory teacher, home education consultant, and an administrator of achievement tests and non-test assessments.


Adams-Gordon has written 13 books and over 500 magazine articles on educational topics. She is a popular speaker throughout the United States and Canada at home education conferences, literacy conventions, teacher in-service training programs and on-line seminar/workshops.
