The program explains over 30 essential and common spelling rules, with easy-to-follow lessons.
It is suitable to use with a wide variety of ages because the focus is on understanding why words are spelt the way they are and learning useful spelling strategies. The best thing is that you will improve your own spelling at the same time!
How does the program work?
Simply follow the same three steps:
- Your child opens up their Spelling Case. All the equipment they need is enclosed and displayed
- You read out the step-by-step instructions from the Spelling Rules Program for your child to follow. They use the equipment from their case to learn specific spelling rules.
- Optional: finish with a worksheet to further develop your child’s understanding of the rules.
