A Creative Approach to Teaching Spelling is packed full of fun and effective multi-sensory games and activities that build phonic skills as a key strategy for spelling. In addition, there are games that develop further strategies to supplement phonic skills. Preceding the games is a summary of major developments in the teaching of spelling over the last forty years. This leads to an analysis of the current research and approaches on which the games are based. With the knowledge, skills and ideas offered, teachers can enhance the growing range of phonic-based spelling programmes currently used within schools, or they can build engaging spelling programmes of their own to meet the specific groups or individual pupils. The games and activities will help to develop and embed children's phonological awareness, phonic knowledge and auditory memory.

The present volume is based on the proceedings of the Advanced Study Institute (ASI) sponsored by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Institute was conducted at the beautiful Chateau de Bonas, near Toulouse, France in October, 1991. A number of scholars from different countries participated in the two-week institute on differential diagnosis and treatments of reading and writing problems. The accepted papers for this volume are divided into three sections: (a) Differential diagnosis of reading disabilities; (b) Access to language-related component processes; and (c) Reading/spelling strategies. The other papers appear in a companion volume: Developmental and Acquired Dyslexia: Neuropsychological and Neurolinguistic Perspectives, also coedited by Joshi and Leong and published by Kluwer Academic Publishers. Several people and organizations have helped us in this endeavor and their assistance is gratefully acknowledged. Our special thanks are due to: the Scientific Affairs Division of NATO for providing the major portion of the financial support; Dr. L. V. da Cunha of NATO and Dr. THo Kester and Mrs. Barbara Kester of the International Transfer of Science and Technology (ITST) for their help and support of the various aspects of the institute; Mr. Charles Stockman and the entire staff of the Chateau de Bonas for making our stay a pleasant one by helping us to run the Institute smoothly. We also wish to thank our reviewers and the following people for other assistance: Christi Martin, and Xi-wu Fang.

TEACH YOUR CHILD TO READ WITH MOVEMENT, FUN & GAMES

This unique reading programme has been developed after many years of working as an Occupational Therapist with children with Dyslexia, Attention Deficit (ADHD) and other reading and learning difficulties. It has been designed specifically for easy use by parents, grandparents and au-pairs, providing a progressive series of games which are fun to play and which take your child developmentally through the stages of learning to read. It can also be used by teachers and remedial teachers as a supplement to their usual lessons because it follows the correct developmental stages of reading. A major difference between this programme and many other programmes for reading is the emphasis on movement, rhythm and rhyme. Parents are often surprised that I encourage movement when teaching reading foundations. They are also usually pleased that at last they can stop the fight of trying to keep their child sitting still and focussing quietly while trying to practise his reading. Movement is fundamental to this programme and rhythm and rhyme are intrinsically linked to movement. The section on vestibular processing explains why I have found this to be so necessary and yet overlooked when teaching reading. In the introduction, I give the reader a brief overview of the underlying principles that have informed my approach. I also help the reader identify the developmental foundations that children need in order to begin to learn to read and understand how each developmental step prepares the way for the next. This is not an in-depth academic diatribe on neuro-development; it is an overview designed to inform and empower the reader to be able to get the best out of the programme. Indeed, I have found that when I empower parents this way, they usually go away to return with even better, more creative ideas and their children progress so much faster. Reading does not begin with the recognition of written letters and how they combine to make words. Children need to learn to become aware of sounds within words and to be able to separate sounds from each other. They need to be able to play with sounds. They also need to recognise shapes of letters and remember the sounds they represent. There is such a lot of learning that needs to be achieved before we can really begin a formal reading lesson. The games in this book start at the early developmental stage of learning to listen actively to the different constituent sounds in words and to play with the sounds of words. These early games can be played in the park or garden since no books are needed. Young children who are not yet ready to learn to recognise written words can play these games and develop a strong base on which to build writing and spelling. The games then continue to follow the development of the foundation skills needed for reading until the last section of games, where actual reading is introduced. When the children reach the section of reading text, it is presented in rhymes that they have already learnt. This not only builds their confidence but also helps them to read with natural flow and tone. The ability to recognise words in different fonts is also introduced at this stage. Each game is presented in easy to follow steps, like following a recipe. The main aim of the game is briefly described, followed by any equipment you might need and where you should play the game. Equipment is kept minimal and simple and most games are designed to be played in and around the home or garden. This makes it easy for parents and children to decide at any time to play a game, without much planning ahead. An illustration for each game makes it easier to find when paging through quickly and stimulates your child’s imagination and interest. At the end of the book a series of worksheets is presented. These are mostly lists of letters, phonic blends and words presented in large bold font and with some grading to develop your child’s ability to recognise letters and words in different fonts. T

This new book gives readers the background they need to impart essential literary skills to students in grades 4-8, including vocabulary, content area, reading, the reading/writing connections, narrative text, and print skills. The author's trademark " mini-lessons" highlight contemporary theories of literacy learning. Significant attention is paid throughout the book to ways to help struggling learners become competent readers and writers. Addressing the needs of the pupil population, this book interestingly and competently covers the constructivist, interactive, socio-linguistic, and reader-response theories of literacy learning. Highlighted notes alert the reader to strategies and techniques that are the most appropriate for the situation, and real-life, concrete illustrations show classroom teaching as it really is. The book also illustrates the use of current technology to spur their learners on to become effective readers and writers. This useful resource is the perfect desk reference for educators from all backgrounds. Also a necessary reference for school administrators, including those in continuing education programs.

SALE! Normal Price $27.50 A homeschooling spelling curriculum that you and your child will love using! This spelling journal was created to be loved by creative and inquisitive children. "I was looking for something that would help my very distracted son when it comes to writing and spelling. I had heard about these books so I looked them up, I joined the Facebook page and began to see how many homeschoolers loved them. So I decided to purchase this one. I have never been so happy. My son loves the pages of the book, he loves walking around the house to find words to spell. This book has changed the way I think about homeschooling, it has given me a little more freedom and creative ideas. One of the best parts of this book is in the back there is a create your own comics, my son is a super big fan of comics so he is looking forward to working on these pages. Great for struggling learners." - Mani This spelling method is best for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade, but with mom's help it can be used for children as young as five years old. the activity book can be used for Dyslexic children and children who are hyper-active, have ADHD or Autism. Struggling learners thrive with this method! There are 180 activity pages so that you can use one page per day during the school year.The method used is a unique approach for teaching visual thinkers who are artistic and intelligent, but may not be doing well with phonics and memorization. It has been said that if children can no learn the way we teach, we must teach the way they learn. That is why this book is so different from other spelling books! This book uses very creative ways of teaching children how to become naturally good spellers. Do not worry about correcting your child's work until they get to the part of the book where they are writing their own short stories. By reading their short stories you can identify all the words that the child has trouble spelling. You can teach them those words by having them write each one down seven times in different colors.Do not make any marks or corrections on the child's book, this is his or her spelling journal, and should not be damaged by grades, or marks. Celebrate everything your child shows you in this journal, and remember learning to spell is like learning to talk. Your child will have some very "cute" ways of spelling in the beginning, and all you have to do is play the COLOR GAME with those words, once the child finishes this journal. As the child works through the journal they may start by spelling some things very "creatively" don't worry! When you read their stories at the end of the book you will see that many spelling problems have "self corrected" because of all the spelling games and activities in this book. Spelling can be fun!The Color Game:There is no need to give a child random spelling lists. Just find out what words the child misspells and have them write their word 7 times on the Fun Page. Use a different color each time.
