Talk for Spelling

Download resource (.pdf)

“Effective teaching of spelling begins with generating a real enthusiasm for language” O’Sullivan & Thomas (2007)

Talk is key in this process. If we want spelling attainment to rise we need to have children examining and discussing words and theories of spelling within a language rich environment. We explore the use of active and engaging teaching strategies which develop an enthusiasm for spelling in both teachers and pupils.
