The Grammar of Spelling: Grade 2

Don't just memorize spelling lists. Learn how to spell. 

Look Inside the Curriculum Here

Many spelling programs overwhelm kids with a lot of spelling rules, which only pile up as the year goes on. This program, developed by veteran Logos teacher B.J. Loyd, teaches students how to hear blends, clusters, and vowel sounds. The lists are cumulative, which allows students to review words throughout the year, and each lesson features dictation sentences that allow even more practice.

Each lesson has the students write the list four times. Students repeat the words, put the words in alphabetical order, write the words from memory, and write them in cursive.

This edition of Grammar of Spelling has the following all-new features:

  • brand-new formatting
  • lesson instructions for the teacher, with tips on how to teach the rule or sound pattern
  • 2 dictation sentences for every lesson
  • 5 extra words taken from the Logos Press homeschool bundle curriculum
  • point assignments for every dictation sentence and for all the tests

The second grade Spelling level includes 36 lists. They cover blends, diphthongs, endings, number words, money words, days of the week, months of the year, color words, and the student’s address & phone number.

What People Are Saying:

“I love how this resource spreads the assignments out over a 5 day school week. Making it less overwhelming. Also it is an easy to follow curriculum that has really aided my son in becoming a better speller.” ~Homeschooling Mom

“It's the easiest thing in the world for a home school teacher to use.” ~Homeschooling Mom

“This curriculum is very straightforward, no pictures or colors or songs or anything, but I like it the best of several I have used, and my daughter likes it too. She really knows the words by the time she is done with the unit and it doesn't take forever to finish each day.” ~ Homeschooling Mom

    Great very excited

    News! We are refusing to drink bud light, but are willing to send our kids to public school, our kids are way more important then cheap beer at the BBQ, it’ is our duty commanded by God to raise our children biblically. This book looks easy to use for parent and my children are going to learn way more using it then public school textbooks,

    good system, but...

    In Lesson 2, which you can see on the preview, it instructs the teacher to explain the double consonants when adding endings, but it does not explain the rule or what to do for the words on the spelling list that don't follow that rule. Page 185 lists the rules but they are not comprehensive and I don't remember them anymore, just how to spell. So, it is a bummer to have to find other resources to teach the rules.

    Love it!

    I absolutely love doing the dictation with my daughter and she really enjoys it too! Great strategy for learning!
