Class 2: The Combination Code: What it is and why it changes spelling forever (in a good way!) Spelling games for the win (ditch copying, have fun remembering)

Class 3: The Vowel Name Code: What it is and why it’s a different (and the best) way to remember spelling combinations

Class 4: The Imposter Code: Why spelling in English can be tough—and how to make it super easy
