Successful Spelling provides an integrated method of teaching phonics, spelling and vocabulary. This book provides students with all the elements of spelling relevant to their age group. The activities are sequential and there are 76 units — 18 per term — plus four Review and Test units.
Each term is divided into the four areas of knowledge needed to develop a comprehensive mastery of spelling.
These four areas are:
Phonological Knowledge – how words sound
Word Function Knowledge – how word function can change spelling
Meaning Knowledge – how context can change word form
Word History Knowledge – how words have been derived
The Phonological Knowledge and the Word Function Knowledge sections include Revision and Test sheets for each term—plus four units of Review and Test sheets covering the whole book.
The author Peter Clutterbuck has written many best-selling resources for primary schools.
Answers to all activities are provided in an eight-page liftout section.
