1. How do I know where to start?

Inside there is a suggested sequence starting in kindergarten. If you're not sure what skills your child knows, start at the beginning. Do not tell an older child you are starting with a kindergarten list, just tell them you want to see how they can spell some words.

2. What about non-phonetic words?

Many sight words that schools say need to be memorized can be sounded out. Even those that aren't 100% phonetic still are based on sounds - the spelling is just a little unusual. Use the included Sight Words by Sounds pages to teach those word to your child while you're working on specific phonics skills to spell.
