Read what other homeschoolers say about Phonetic Zoo.
Phonetic Zoo is a self teaching spelling program using audio CDs, zoo flashcards which introduce new spelling rules and a word card which lists the spelling rule and words for three different levels. Many homeschool families love using this spelling curriculum.
I use Phonetic Zoo for my auditory learning style son.
I really like that he can use headphones to help him really listen and tune out household noises.
Once we learned how to use the system he can work independently and give me daily reports as to which lesson he is using and how many words he spelled correctly.
He has also had to learn a little organization by keeping up with the card, cd, ear buds, and pens needed for his daily spelling work.
This isn't a workbook type system so your student will not be doing crossword puzzles or wordseaches or even dictionary skills. It is just a spelling program, which means learning the spelling rule, spelling the words and checking the words. This program works well for our family.
