Spelling

Spelling does matter.

 

Not only does spelling matter, the weekly spelling list can form the core of a language/literacy program that provides students with a thorough understanding, not only of how words work, but also of word meanings in various contexts.

Structuring literacy activities around a hierarchical spelling program will provide a cohesive structure that leaves nothing to chance, and may well reduce the possibility of gaps appearing in students’ literacy knowledge as they progress through the grades.
