Product Details

Develop and Enhance Your Students' Reading and Spelling Skills

SPELL-Links™ to Reading and Writing and Class Links use a speech-to-print word study approach that leverages the brain's innate, biological wiring and organization for oral language. Unlike other reading programs which begin with the written letter and teach students to match the letter to a sound, SPELL-Links and Class Links students first learn how to attend to the sound structure of spoken English words and then how to connect and combine sounds (phonology), letter patterns (orthography, mental orthographic images), and meanings (semantics, morphology) to read and spell words. This is exactly how the brain works in good readers and writers!

Students also develop meta-linguistic skills and build executive function skills that empower them to independently apply their word study knowledge, skills, and strategies to successfully and independently read, write, and spell every day, not just during the classroom lesson or on the weekly test.

Which one do I choose?

SPELL-Links to Reading & Writing delivers all components of assessment and instruction identified by the US Department of Education funded Center on Instruction as crucial for developing reading and spelling skills in every student.

​The individualized and flexible design of SPELL-Links to Reading & Writing ensures that there is a word study solution for everyone! You can count on SPELL-Links to improve all aspects of literacy—reading, writing, spelling, speaking, listening, and vocabulary—of Tiers 1, 2, & 3 students as well as Special Education, Speech-Language Impaired, ESL, Title I, and students with dyslexia.   

Class Links, which is based on SPELL-Links, provides everything you need to deliver a year of high-quality, hands-on Tier 1 classroom instruction to meet all the educational development standards for Reading Foundational skills, along with many other English Language Arts Standards including: spelling, word decoding, reading fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing.
