Spelling for Life

Do you find spelling ‘difficult’, ‘complex’, ‘confusing’ or ‘confounding’?
This workshop will enable teachers and parents to:

  • learn about common spelling coping strategies
  • gain insights into undoing poor spelling habits
  • work together to notice patterns not only in regular spelling, but also in words which on the surface seem to break the spelling rules, and
  • practice successful spelling strategies, progressing from simple to complex words rapidly and with confidence.

This highly acclaimed overview of spelling succeeds in developing critical thinking and confidence when reading and spelling. 

Workshop outline:

Spelling for Life  is recommended for Years 3 to 6.

Knowing how to spell requires four basic strands of knowledge: visual, morphological, phonological and etymological. Deciding which strand to apply and when is a formidable task for teachers.
