This is a series of books designed to teach spelling using the Charlotte Mason method. Both British and American versions are available. Each book gives dictations out of what they describe as ‘the writings of great men and women of history’ using 6000 of the most frequently used words in the English language. The child studies the passage, then chooses words to focus on and study. When he/she is ready the parent dictates the passage, quickly covering any misspelled words so that thy are not committed to memory. With this method spelling is learned through the use of language rather than memorization.
