- What We Offer
What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.
This idea came from one of our mums who is a SPELD assessor and teacher.
You can use any spelling list that you like.
Each day of the week the child writes each of the words and writes 2-3 sentences using a word from the list.
Then in addition:
Monday - the child groups the words into blend/sound families (if any)
Tuesday - the words are alphabetised
Wednesday - any syllables are identified
Thursday - 2 words that the child may not know are looked up in the dictionary and the meaning is written out
Friday - the 2 words from Thursday are illustrated.
