The Phonetic Zoo is a phonics based spelling program from the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) that uses auditory input to ensure students absorb and retain words' correct spellings; students receive auditory input and spell the word aloud, letter by letter, to help them accurately remember the correct sequence---rather than simply looking at the word as a whole.
Students should take the Placement Exam (see above Placement Exam PDF), to determine the correct starting level. If your student tests as ready for Level C without having completed any of the previous levels, this Level C Starter Set should be purchased; if you've purchased a starter kit in the past, only the audio CDs are required.
Grade C is designed for grades 9-12. 47 audio lessons.
The Starter Set package includes:
- 5 audio CDs
- Lesson Cards with all three levels of spelling words (A, B, and C) and jingles and a Personal Spelling Card to keep track of your student's typical misspellings
- Zoo Cards that serve as a way to practice jingles or as rewards
- Downloadable Phonetic Zoo Teacher's Notes PDF file
- Spelling and the Brain video seminar (link to streaming video)
