See-N-Spell & See-N-Read

See-N-Spell Vocabulary & Spelling Quick Reference Guide

With just 40-pages in the See-N-Spell™ booklet, users can simply flip to the page showing the first letter (a,b,c, etc.) of the word, then scan down the page and copy the correct spelling.

  • Identify the correct spelling and usage of 'sound-alike' words (homophones)
  • Quickly determine the correct spelling of commonly misspelled words
  • Verify the correct usage of these words
It's fast and easy to use since it is divided into three alphabetized sections:

  • Most Commonly Used Vocabulary Words
  • Commonly Misspelled Words
  • My Special Interest Words

Why not just look it up in a dictionary?

The typical answer to this is "If I don't know how to spell it, how can I find it in a dictionary?" Other common answers are "I can't use those 3-inch-thick dictionaries", or "I don't want to take the time", or "I know what it means, I just don't know how to spell it" or "I can just use SpellCheck"

Ever hear any of those... I sure have!

The need for correct spelling and adequate vocabulary is not limited to English Literature and Composition courses...they are essential components of success in Social Studies, Science and Math as well as in the world of business.


Recommended for Grade 4 through Adult.  Just $9.99.

The Bentz Test Laboratory was excited about this resource!  I mean it - they get exta points for using vocabulary words in Coop writing class, and they recognized the value of this handy little book right away!
Each letter contains lists of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and homophones, all they need is the first letter.  Alliteration scores bonus points at writing class...  Imagine the possibilities with a list like this!!

We also were sent a

See-N-Read Tool

It's a practical reading remediation tool designed to help readers see, focus, and remember what they read. See-N-Read reduces word- and line-skipping and pattern glare (words appear to move on the page). Research-based and tested for users from Grade 2 to Adult. Just $2.99

I used this one on the youngest members of the Bentz Test Laboratory that are just learning to read.  What a simple concept, but it works so well! A handy sized plastic tool to lay on the page.  A clear line where they are reading, while the rest is grayed out. So easy to keep them in the right place!

The right tools make the job so much easier.  These are two tools that I highly recommend you add to your "toolbox"!

I was sent complimentary copies in exchange for my honest opinion as part of the TOS Review Crew.
