A Creative Approach to Teaching Spelling: The What, Why and How of Teaching Spelling, Starting with Phonics
By: Kate Robinson (author)Paperback
A Creative Approach to Teaching Spelling will help teachers address the spelling targets of the new English curriculum and can also be used to support and enhance the growing range of phonic based spelling programmes currently used within schools. It provides a basic summary of the major developments in the teaching of spelling over the last 40 years and outlines current research and approaches. The renewed emphasis on phonic knowledge as a key element of all reading and spelling programmes is highlighted, as are those additional complimentary approaches to teaching spelling that are supported by current research. The games and activities will help to develop and embed children's phonological awareness, phonic knowledge and auditory memory.
