Spalding says to start spelling words in the middle of the spelling/vocabulary notebook. I know the first 7 pages are for the rules. What goes in between?

The pages between the rule pages and the middle of the notebook (where the stitching is) are used to dictate vocabulary from children’s literature. The spelling words they write in the last half the book (starting at the stitching) are the Extended Ayres Word List, pages 254 – 402 in the sixth edition of The Writing Road to Reading.


Students never write anything in their spelling/vocabulary notebook except spelling words and the extra vocabulary words discussed above.
