Spelling Methods for Primary School
Children with spelling problems have difficulty reproducing words. This is because a mixture of tall and small letters define the breaks in a word and reduce it to a smaller number of units. A child must be able to form a visual image in their mind (such as a word) and then be able to recall it accurately in order to spell.
Our spelling programs are designed to improve visual sequential memory. In addition to the ‘Keys to Reading’ program, we offer the Spalding Method. The rules of the English language are taught, enabling your child to understand the rules necessary to improve their reading and spelling skills.
The program focuses on stretching the visual memory in structured steps and teaches the child how to look at words in a new way. Ultimately, children learn how to self-correct and improve their own spelling strategies.
