This historically significant document as been the basis of spelling for over 70 years. Now from out of the golden past, this famous Ayres spelling scale returns. With it are actual scores of school children of that time and the actual order of difficulty those phonics-trained children found the words to be.
Does your child spell as well as those children? Now you can find out. Test your child, score, and compare with scores from the phonics-trained children. You can teach spelling from this book too.
Sinple to use. The word lists, the norms, the instructions - all are here for you.
