Written to support National Literacy Framework and Spelling Bank objectives for spelling, this spelling course aims to deliver step-by-step guidance to spelling success. It teaches children aged 6-11 essential spelling rules by investigating how they work. Five colourful pupil books provide clear, step-by-step investigation and practice of key spelling rules. Each spelling rule is practiced in context with built-in opportunities to extend practice into text-based writing activities, with "how to help" tips on every page. Photocopiable activity sheets give differentiated practice ideal for group and independent work and two customizable CDROMs provide animated presentation of each rule and feature additional games and tests. Further support is provided in one practical Teacher's Guide that covers the whole course. Packed with teaching tips, links to text work and ICT, and answers, it is also fully referenced to NLS objectives and 5-14 Guidelines, it should make it simple to integrate important spelling work into your daily lesson.
