This week on the The Homeschool Show we spend some time with Staci Jackson, a homeschooling mom who is also an endorsed Spell to Write and Read (SWR) Trainer. Staci Jackson has been teaching for years in public, private, and homeschool settings. She talks about the SWR program, what it is, how it works, and why a phonics based approach to spelling, writing and reading is better than some of the other approaches.
