Bring Spelling Alive

How often do you find a resource that can meet the needs of all spellers, whether they are requiring high levels of support or vocabulary enrichment and extension? Bring Spelling Alive is that rare resource able to cater to both these ends of the spectrum and the needs in between. Founded on a sight and sound based spelling programme, it teaches and continually reinforces a strategic approach to unknown words so that learners come to take responsibility for working out how words are configured. Books 1 and 2 establish and consolidate the strategies needed to actively engage with words. Book 3 offers a complete programme for the formal spelling lessons within any classroom programme. Book 4 sets out ideas and strategies for developing vocabulary, recognising that beyond the classroom the written and spoken word must compete with many other forms of entertainment.

Ages: 5-11 years
