Spelling is a complex cognitive process, not a simple act of memorisation. This book promotes the belief that spelling is a vital part of the communication process, and that when students come to conscious awareness of their thinking about spelling, they become active participants and increasingly independent communicators. This book present spelling as an engaging inquiry process which needs to be supported by a consistent approach across the whole school. They provide clear guidance about creating your own school's supportive learning community, explaining practical ways to assess student spelling needs and adjust teaching practice to guide students' thinking about spelling. The purpose of learning to spell is to assist with effective written communication. Within a supportive community and as active participants in their own learning, students learn to love language, become confident spellers and independent communicators.Sort words according to sound and visual patterns, make charts to displayfindings and label charts as sound orvisual ... studyjournals: identify tricky parts or key features of words to be learnt Explore meaning relationships, homophones, compound words, contractions and plurals, and record findings on charts Referto the whole school editora#39;s code Continue to use word searches to generate lists of wordsanbsp;...
