James B. Webster, Ph.D.
Looking for a new approach to spelling? This phonics-based program uses auditory input to ensure that the correct spelling of each word is absorbed by the brain. The audio allows students to work independently much of the time, while allowing for the repetition needed for mastery. The audio portion of the program can be purchased as CDs or as an MP3 download. If you choose the MP3 download, the study cards will be shipped and a regular shipping fee will be applied.
Give your student our placement test to determine which level to start with.
Purchase the audio CDs alone if you already have a level of the Phonetic Zoo Starter Set and would like to move to the next level.
The Starter Set package includes:
- 5 audio CDs (includes MP3 downloads)
or MP3 downloads and no CDs
- Lesson Cards with all three levels of spelling words and jingles
- Personal Spelling Cards to keep track of your student’s typical misspellings
- Zoo Cards that serve as a way to practice jingles or as rewards
- Phonetic Zoo Teacher’s Notes spiral-bound book* (PDF e-book also included)
- Spelling and the Brain video seminar (link to streaming video)**
