Spelling

Spelling must be taught, and I believe in starting with formal spelling from grade 4.

Grades 1 – 3

Use our Basic Words book and flashcards to help the children ‘memorise’ common words, and emphasise phonics on a daily basis (see Phonics).  Word Skills G2 and G3 will start to focus on individual words and how they alter according to context.

Grades 4 – 7

Now we use a three-pronged attack: learning by heart high-frequency words; spelling rules; phonics.  All our spelling material is sent with detailed ‘how-to’ guides for teachers and parents.
