Calvert 4th Grade Spelling is a 30-week course of instruction that practices phonics skills, including vowel combinations and sounding out multisyllabic words, as well as incorporation of word parts such as prefixes and suffixes. Units include review of base and root words, plural nouns, and homophones.
Each unit represents a specific spelling rule or word family. Each unit contains five short assignments per week that can be taught as a stand-alone course or can easily integrate with the Calvert 4th Grade Language Arts curriculum. Lessons and projects include multimedia to support the content, as well as incorporation of rubrics for clear assessment.
