A new traditional Catholic Spelling series for elementary and middle school grades, St. Jerome Spelling provides classic education with First Grade spelling words, along with beautiful pages for your student to expand their vocabulary skills. These jungle-themed pages will hopefully ease the student's progress through learning their words. Grade 1 contains only print writing practice, no cursive. It is also used in the St. Jerome School curriculum for homeschoolers. We originally created this book to replace Our Lady of Victory's Traditional Catholic Speller Workbook 1 because we feel starting cursive in Kindergarten is a bit too much for young children, and we begin it in Grade 1 in our curriculum.
