After the first 40 days I was a little apprehensive about the program. My child had scored a 70% on the 40 day evaluation. While 70% isn’t poor, it isn’t great either. So I decided to measure progress instead. Before starting day 41 of the program I gave my kid the test that is given after 80 days. Below is a comparison of the test given before instruction and after instruction. Incorrectly spelled words are bolded.
|loned||loned (supposed to be loaned)|
|exiting||exiting (supposed to be exciting)|
|70% correct||90% correct|
I am pleased with the results. The test took a look at many of the patterns learned over the past 40 days of instruction. I’ve already given my kid the pretest for the 120 day test. She scored only 60% so it will be interesting to see her progress. So far, Sequential Spelling appears to be working for us.
