Product description

The book features a wide range of activities including crosswords, picture matching, puzzles and rhymes. All will keep learners focussed and interested, whilst providing vital practice at three levels – beginner, intermediate and advanced. The book is divided into units which concentrate on a particular ‘sound’ or phoneme. Each unit is then broken down into a series of lesson plans, devoted to a common spelling pattern for that ‘sound’. The final unit provides material to improve learners’ awareness of common spelling traps, such as suffixes or silent letters. Every lesson contains a step-by-step lesson plan, background information for the teacher, photocopiable practice activities and suggested words for testing each spelling pattern.

Key features

  • Has an adaptable structure, making it is suitable for a wide range of teaching contexts and levels.
  • Easy-to-use lesson plans provide clear procedures for teaching spelling.
  • The material covers most common spelling patterns, grouped according to sound.
