3. Methods for spelling long words and foreign-based words. It delves into the concept of 'the family of sounds.'

Many children panic when they see long or foreign words and letter combinations, such as simultaneous. The Doctor Do Read story tackles these problems by teaching common families of letters, such as ssion and ible. These complex sounds are taught with innovative combinations of animals and birds grouped into families. Each family of sounds represents a challenging cluster of letters commonly found in difficult-to-spell words.

Examples of the families of letters taught include:

ous, ......ious, ......eous, ......tial, ......cial, ......tion, ......ssion, ......sion, ......ciate, ......tiate, ......ify, ......ible,

  able, ......ence, ...... ance, ......ent, ......ant, ......ture, ......ique, ......ch, ......eau, ...... eaux, ......zz, ...... ain, ......ate, ......ary, ......tory,
