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 Matt Whitling, teaches and reviews five basic spelling rules, as well as more difficult spelling words called stumpers. 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 fourth grade Spelling level includes 38 lists. They cover the five spelling rules, homophones, books of the Bible, words from American history, weather words, ordinals, and difficult "stumpers."

“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 spelling program, but could be formatted better for ease of use for homeschooling.

      My students have grasped on to this form of instruction. The students take ownership over their work, and spelling is already improving. This pairs well with any other phonics or language instruction for students.
