Phonemic Advantage


Spelling Gets a Bad Rap

Why spelling's reputation is not-so-good

Alphabet Harbor Spelling

Grades 1 - 2

Rock Harbor Spelling

Grades 3 - 4

Spelling gets a bad rap,
Phonemic Advantage™ plans to change that.

Knowing the code is the place to start,
So kids can learn rules that won’t break apart.

There are two ways to teach spelling—
from the front of the word or the back.
So watch the action at the end,
And then the
rules will not bend.
