A typical dictionary shows how to spell a word but not why it is spelled that way. The updated Alpha List analyzes 2,300 high frequency and commonly misspelled words, divides them into syllables, uses SWR markings, and cites rules, derivatives, points of interest, and their location in The WISE Guide.
This book is not restricted to users of SWR. Our marking system is summarized and our rules are provided. If a child misspells a word, now you can have a resource to successfully explain it phonetically.
The Alpha List is an invaluable resource for the SWR teacher of any age or level.
