A Closer Look at Spelling in The Primary Classroom

A Closer Look at Spelling in The Primary Classroom
Presented by DR GRACE OAKLEY and JANET FELLOWES
Spelling is an aspect of literacy that is vital. Proficient and confident spellers are more able to write texts with precision and fluency, and are thus more equipped to achieve across the curriculum, as well as having a more positive attitude to writing. In order to spell well students need to learn how to strategically use knowledge about phonology, orthography, morphology and etymology. Spelling is also a visual activity that involves laying down and retrieval of visual representations of words and word parts in memory.

This workshop draws on theoretical research literature as well as classroom examples, to demonstrate how to use a variety of teaching strategies to teach primary school-aged children to use multiple strategies to spell well.
