    Hi,

    We use a combination of Sitton and phonics based spelling. It is our "own blend". We assume first graders will know how to spell cvc words by the time we start this program second semester. Sitton takes a lot of diligence as you need to keep the class totally accountable and by the time you reach third-fourth grade, you need to have several hundred words under your belt.

    I have the forty Sitton words posted in my room and most of my first graders use them consistently in their writing. I do LOTS of dictation during whole class instruction- about 20 mins. three times a week. The kids love it, which surprises me.
