What makes ‘The Spelling Book’ different from other spelling schemes?
The Spelling Book is not a scheme, it’s more a way of teaching spelling that relies on teachers to bring the ‘wonder of words’ to life. The Spelling Books provide structure and support to teachers whilst allowing enough room for creativity, ensuring that all National Curriculum fundamentals are covered. The Spelling Book system exceeds all expectations around making the teaching of spelling effective, and ‘stick-able’, for children.
All of the concepts, activities and tasks within the books have been designed to increase ‘stickability’ and retention of vocabulary. The system is built on strong phonic foundations and includes a range of deep exploratory investigations, alongside short-burst ‘chunked’ revision activities.
The Spelling Book is the answer to the time-poor teachers’ planning nightmares. The year view of detailed provision from Year 2 to Year 6 ensures pupils have a good understanding of the wealth of content within the books and they are able to self assess and monitor their own strengths and weaknesses in spelling. Through using the quality materials and comprehensive guidance within The Spelling Book, children will develop expertise and fluency. The books are adaptable, engaging and thorough, serving as a way to ‘up the ante’ in primary spelling provision.
“The Spelling Book not only provides an implementable and comprehensive overview of spelling for Primary school senior leaders, but excitingly also provides a system of highly-engaging resources for classroom teachers to use and their pupils to love!”
