Spell to Write and Read is a language arts, spelling, and grammar program inspired by The Writing Road to Reading. Spell to Write and Read works from some of the same outstanding sources that Romalda Spalding used in The Writing Road to Reading. Both systems draw from the 70 Phonograms (the sound-letter system to the English language organized by Anna Gillingham), the Extended Ayres List (a scientifically normed core list of spelling words), the method of spelling dictation demonstrated by Dr. Samuel Orton, and a general core list of spelling rules collected from different writers in the previous century. Wanda Sanseri has updated these basic tools based on modern computer research. She has organized the teacher materials in a user-friendly format and rewritten the spelling rules to make them more precise, lyrical, and complete. She has expanded the instruction to create a fuller and integrated language arts program.
