How to Dazzle at Spelling is a structured resource for teaching Key Stage 3 (KS3), 11-14 year old, pupils with special educational needs to understand and commit sounds, letter strings and high frequency words to memory.
The rules of spelling are often difficult for pupils to assimilate because there are so many exceptions. Therefore rules require reinforcement many times before they are understood. The activities in this book are designed to develop: visual and aural discrimination, visual and aural recognition, visual and aural memory.
Pupils will learn that if they visualize the words, as well as sound them out, they have a better chance of spelling them correctly.
The worksheets include: learning all the common rules of spelling; words containing short and long vowel sounds; groups of letters such as ea, ee, ai; the silent e; the prefix dis-; word endings, such as -ed, -ough and -tion; breaking words into syllables
