This workbook departs from the the use of phonics rules and presents spelling words in groups according to various domains of knowledge. Domains include (but are not limited to) world and U.S. geography, astronomy, anatomy, health, law, economics, music, buildings, and animals. Word-bank, crossword, fill-in-the-blank, and other exercises are used to provide variety and help students with retention.
Test sheets are included at the back of the book. With 36 units and 5 lessons per unit, the text is designed to be used daily over a 36 week period.

It is teaching my children much more than basic spelling.
This is the third book of the series that my student has used. The material presented in each grade level has been, I'm glad to say, far more challenging than its public school equivalent. Text is clear and concise, with adequately varied activities within each lesson. The lessons also provide a helpful review of solid, old-fashioned grammar.
