- What We Offer
The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.
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.
