As a 2nd year member of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to review many homeschool products over the next several months. The only compensation that I receive for my review is the free product. I feel truly blessed to be participating in this review group and I'm looking forward to trying out more products and giving you my honest opinion.


AVKO is the creator of the popular homeschool curriculum, Sequential Spelling. What you may not know is that there are many more resources available on the AVKO website including a one-year membership for $25. When you join the AVKO membership, you are helping this non-profit organization in its "fight to bring literacy to all" as well as getting quite a few online perks.

As part of the TOS Crew, I received a one-year membership to AVKO to review. The perks of membership include:

* 25% discount on all printed AVKO materials

*Free ebooks:
The Patterns of English Spelling (All 10 Volumes) with Word Families in Sentence Context
To Teach a Dyslexic
Starting at Square One
The Teaching of Reading & Spelling: a Continuum from Kindergarten through College.
The Reading Teacher's List of Over 5,500 Basic Spelling Words

*AVKO newsletter

*MP3 Downloads of Don McCabe's workshops

*and more

It seemed that a lot of these materials were supplemental to the Sequential Spelling curriculum and since we don't use that, it was hard for me to find much that would really be beneficial to our homeschool. However if you are using this program, or have a child with reading problems such as dyslexia, than the $25 AVKO membership is a treasure trove of information for you.
