Spelling You See G: Modern Milestones
Modern Milestones is designed for students in the Word Extension stage of spelling. Students are introduced to a new way of marking word patterns that emphasizes how prefixes and suffixes are added to base words to enhance or change their meanings. Copywork and dictation activities provide opportunities for students to practice new word patterns in a meaningful context. A weekly Workshop page provides more practice with the concepts taught in each lesson. The focus of the passages in Modern Milestones is on artists, musicians, scientists, and others who have influenced our world since early modern times. This level has been designed to encourage more independent learning on the part of the student, always with the support and encouragement of the instructor.
The Student Pack includes two student workbooks and a pack of erasable colored pencils. Each of the 36 lessons is divided into five parts, A through E, and includes two facing pages. The pages include instructional material for the student. Each day the student reads the passage and marks the appropriate base words, suffixes, and prefixes indicated for that day’s lesson. Copywork, writing from dictation, and a weekly Workshop page provide opportunities to practice word patterns in a meaningful context.
