Helping Hints

Teaching Tips for Syllable Savvy Spelling Lists

  • Each lesson has 15 words, with space for five more words individualized to the student. These five words might include:
    • Words misspelled in previous lessons
    • Words misspelled in the students creative writing
    • Words from science or other unit studies

  • Most lessons contain a pair of words such as "virtue" & "virtuous" or "confidence" & "confidence" in the lists above. This helps students learn roots, prefixes, and suffixes in context.

  • The back of the book contains the Spelling Rules index with the most helpful spelling rules and patterns.

Word Themes

You probably noticed that the annual theme for the sixth grade spelling lists is Nations and Capitals. Each lesson begins with two or three different nations of the world.
