Description

A book of strategies to improve spelling skills making children more confident readers and writers.

Teaching children to spell is essential if we want them to become confident writers. Good spellers can write more fluently, as they donʼt have to pause to consider how each word should be spelt. Furthermore, children with good spelling skills are more likely to make adventurous vocabulary choices and be better at reading.

This book will boost childrenʼs spelling skills by providing them with strategies to help them spell and read unfamiliar words. It is designed for use from Year 2 and beyond with children who are struggling with spelling.

The book follows the Letters and Sounds guidelines for Phases 2-6. It explores high frequency keywords, specific letter patterns, suffix endings and introduces ten key spelling rules.

The strategies covered include:

  • Breaking down words by syllables
  • Learning memory joggers for irregularly spelt key words
  • Using rhyming patterns to link known words to those that may not be familiar, to help pupils realise that words which share a common sound end pattern often have same letter sequence.

Boost Spelling Skills contains structured lists of spelling, reading activities and worksheets connected with each specific letter pattern, spelling rule or suffix ending. Targeted dictation exercises provide opportunity for reinforcement and consolidation.
